I really enjoy the Poetry for Young People seriesfrom Sterling Publishing.
In the Robert Frost volume is Hyla Brook, a perfect little poem that is about a lowly, local brook, but is really all about the last line.
by Robert Frost
By June our brook's run out of song and speed.
Sought for much after that, it will be found
Either to have gone groping underground ...
... A brook to none but who remember long.
This as it will be seen is other far
Than with brooks taken otherwhere in song.
We love the things we love for what they are.
(Read the entire poem here.)
