I'm searching for a poem that has the words " My life I carry in a leaky pail" .
Can anyone help me with finding the name of this poem and who it was written by?

    I googled the poem you're looking for, and did find a lot of websites that it should be in, but never found that poem. Apparently a lot of people have written about leaky buckets, leaky pails, leaky cauldrens, leaky fishtanks, and on and on.

    If you do find it, I'd like to know because I can relate to " carrying my life in a leaky pail" and would like to read it.
