In my latter High School days, as part of an oral communications course, I was required to memorize and deliver a poem before the class. I found one in the school library and met the requirement with decent marks. For some reason I cannot recall enough about this poem to find it again.
- The perspective is that of the Innkeeper
- A first person account of an error made was told in the past tense
- There is a repeated lamentation of "Had I'd only known" or "If I'd only known"
- I found the poem originally in a text that was a compilation of multiple authors (Pretty sure)
