My sister read this poem to me when I was about 10 years old. Act that
time, we slept 2 or 3 to a bed, There were 11 children in our family and
were not wealthy. I thought at that time , we were so lucky. We had warm
clothes and enought to eat so we felt rich. my sister has been dead for 30
years as she died at the age 52. I cried I remember her reading this poem
as if it were yesterday. for some reason today, I decided to try and find
it. I thought the title was "" The Ballard of the Hearth Weaver. I have it
saved so I can read it often. Thanks for the memory and this web site. My
age is 73.

The Ballad od the Harp Weaver

My Mother told me this poem many years ago. I memorized for my 8th grade
talent show and then did it for one of my daughter's talent shows in
elementary school. It has always stayed with me through all these years.
She also told me the poem "The House With Noboby in It. I do not know who
wrote it.

poem found

I am so happy I finally found this poem! I have been searching for it for
years and never knew the name of the author. I read it when I was ten
years old and re read many times it until the book was lost. I have always
loved this one!

The Ballad Of The Harp-Weaver

We memorized this poem in the 8th grade. I loved it. It always has stayed
with me about a mother and her deep love for her child, and the fact that
she gave all to take care of him. What a lesson to learn as a young child.
I only hope that I can portray the same love to my children and then my
grandchildren. I love the fact that my teacher loved this poem enough to
share it with us.

The Ballad of the Harp Weaver

I hand copied this poem from my 6th grade English book thirty nine years
ago. I cried over it and decided to memorize it. From then on my mom
would ask me to recite it for friends when they were over especially near
the Christmas season. By the way, it still makes me tear up.

The Ballad Of The Harp-Weaver

I first read this poem when I was in Jr. High School and it was at the
direction of my English teacher. I loved the poem then and still have the
original sheet that the teacher gave out. I think I linked with the poem
because it was as if the young boy in the poem had the same life I did. No
matter where I go in life and no matter what I accomplish this poem reminds
me to be humble through it all.

My mother read this poem to me when I was a little girl almost 50 years
ago. We both cried while she read it. I still do. I have been a
self-employed, full time handweaver for 30 years. It continues to speak to
