looking for a poem

Help! Am looking for a poem titled "Rachel in Heaven" with partial verse that reads as follows: "... and on her foot fall in the rustling leaves, her whisper on the wind, she speaks from a place beyond mortal pain." Would appreciate any info. Thank you

There's a suggestion on the 'Lost Quotations' page that a poem by this name appeared in the 2002 movie, Dragonfly. [www.poetrylibrary.org.uk] />
Is that where you found it?

Someone said it's by 'Philip J Barsington (1889-1965)'- I couldn't find any web info on the first pass.

I'm not having any luck with his name, either.

Generally, if a poem from a show or movie (or ad) doesnt' show up in a simple net search, it's because it was written FOR that show or movie (or ad). If Barsington existed, he may have been the father of someone who wrote the movie.

That's not what I wanted to hear! Any other ideas?

Uh, rent the movie? Just guessing, you understand.

Rent the movie and WATCH THE CREDITS.

If the poem pre-dates the movie, there will be a note in the credits giving the title, author, copyright date, and who granted permission for its use in the movie.

ANOTHER WAY TO GO: Start with the official website for the movie [ [www.dragonflymovie.com] ] and find an email address for PUBLIC RELATIONS at the studio that produced it ... or find the screenwriter(s)'s name and look him/them up on the internet and ask ... or find a fan site and see if some resourceful fan of the film has already done one or both of the above.

AND IF YOU FIND OUT: PLEASE POST THE ANSWER HERE!

Thanks,

I'm sorry to say the 'Philip J Barsington' information was spurious, emanating from some twerp who eventually became such a tiresome nuisance that the Lost Quotations site had to close down.

I should have explained also that the worthless posts of that public nuisance to Lost Quotations were made using false or hijacked email addresses as a signature. The real H.Peacock was not the one who posted the tripe about Philip J Barsington.

Twerp is a very restrained description of the sa(i)d person

The Poetry Library Lost Quotations site was withdrawn, precisely because of this twerp's activities.

A new site will replace it later this year but it will not be interactive.

emule is now hosting the poem-finding activity on this page, and I am eternally grateful to the administrators for that.

Stephen - Thanks to you and to emule for providing this site. I didn't expect 'Philip J Barsington (1889-1965)' to follow us here. Is there no escape?
I met Odeflinger last week on my bicycle tour of the Wolds! Can I have your hotdog please?
