My school psychologist sent me an email seeking a poem that she remembers.
I've had no luck trying various key words, so I turn to you- the smartest
people on the planet. <G>  Does anyone recognize this poem from her

"There is a poem I've seen, but of course didn't keep it, and I've wished I
had it many times since... Something about who wonderful it is to have a
friend that you don't have to weigh your words with, who like a thresher,
will separate the chaff from the grain, keeping the good and letting the
chaff blow away...  Ok, it's a real ROUGH paraphrase, but the analogy to the
wheat is in there...  I can't recall the name of the poem, specifically, or
of the author (although, I'm thinking it is a woman)... Any chance you know
what I'm talking about so that I can try to find a copy of it???"

I would really appreciate any help that you can give me!  TIA
