can you help me find a poem?

I took my GCSE English Literature exam about a week ago, and in the unseen poetry section of the questions there was a really nice poem, and everyone came out of the exam saying, 'wasn't that a good poem'.
I can't remember it off by heart, but I can remember what it was about, and I was wondering if anyone knew it, or knew where I could find it.
It was about a man called Harry, and he lived in a caravan, had a bit of a simple life, but he was happy and content. But people thought that he must be sad, and pittied him a bit for his life. And then in the last stanza, which is my favourite bit, went something like, 'And at his funeral, his friends tears fell like a thousand diamonds'
I did the Welsh Joint Education Commitee exam, so if anyone knows if they keep a kind of bank of past papers that might help too.

Haven't found it (yet) , but I applaud your effort to exonerate a maligned poem.

(Typo collectors: I wrote "exxonerate" by mistake -- I guess that means to be cleared of blame for an oil spill.)
