I came across a poem in an anthology that praised a lady for her excellence as a translator.
English (!) approx 25 lines, rhyming couplets (pentameter) , approx 1650 - 1750, theme: the (English) lady's good qualities, but especially the art of translation.
Sadly, all those 'parameters' are fuzzy-edged.

I'm looking for a poem, I know it's something modern, like Beckman or Dickman.
It is sort of a minimalistic poem, and it goes something like this:
trees, and more trees
and beyond the trees
nothing but skies
It is longer than this, but these are the few fragments that I can still remember.
Would love your help, such a beautiful poem.

I'm looking for a poem about a woman that is visited by her dead lover, he takes her on his horse and they ride until they reach a graveyard where he's buried.

Greetings. I'm trying desperately to find a poem I read in college about 4-5 years ago. I could've sworn it was titled " Marzipan." I seem to remember it was about a woman at some kind of party making chit-chat and blurts out that her mother commit suicide. That's all I have to go on, but I really would love to read this poem again (it still sticks out in my mind after all this time!)
Please help me find it. Thanks in advance.

" I'll lend for a little while
A child of mine, " He Said.
For You love thee while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years
Or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call him back,
Take good care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
For all from life returns,
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over
In my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labor vain
Nor hate me when I come to call to
Take him home Again
My wife's mom got this when (my wife's) brother drowned. Her mom (who has passed away) would give this to any family that lost a child. My wife found it and would like to know who wrote it.
