Thread Name: Lyr Req: In School Days (John Greenleaf Whittier)
Subject: Help: looking for author of 2 poems
My grandmother asked my to look on this new-fangled computer thingie and try to find the author of these 2 poems.

One begins:
Carve me an angel, sculptor
And let your stone be white.
So white that it will shimmer,
Reflecting back the light.



The second reads
Still sits the schoolhouse by the road
A ragged beggar sleeping
(next line unknown)
And blackberry vines are creeping.
