I have a memory of a poem that has a line something like "coming upon a familiar place, and seeing as if for the first time." Can anybody help me figure out where that idea is from? thank you.
Where/when did you learn the line? Many times the person who gave you the poem still has it, or can find the book/text which contains it. Librarians often have access to school books/sources that might help.
The lines sound familiar, but a quick check of the internet finds no poem with those exact words. Is that a paraphrase, or do you know for sure they are the exact words from the poem?
