Mary-

I found the poem quoted (I think in its entirety) in connection with a
memorial for a faculty member at the University of Texas.  The text that
prefaces the poem claims that the poem appears in the autobiography of
Dr.  Hans Zinnser-who he is, I'm not sure.  But perhaps that will help
you? Here is the link I followed; the poem is at the end:

Good luck!
