hunting for a particular poem

Many years back I was touched by a poem by Bradbury that discussed looking forward at one's life and concluded with (I think) "I remember you, I remember you". I would like to know the title and where I might find it published. Thank you, BobR

Hi, BobR. The poem is "Remembrance", and it was published in Bradbury's poetry collection When Elephants Last in the Dooryard Bloomed:


The poem is about looking forward AND looking back: the narrator climbs a tree and looks for something he hid there when he was young. It turns out to be a note that says, "I remember you."

The book is currently out of print, but there are copies available from Amazon and other onlin stores.

"Remembrance" MIGHT also be included in They Have Not Seen The Stars: The Collected Poetry of Ray Bradbury - I can't confirm this, as I don't own that particular book.


- Phil
