Chocolate Pi Help: Spoon River Anthology songs?! (42) RE: SPOON RIVER TUNES 06 May 00

I was in a dramatic reading type play of Spoon River Anthology at summer camp many years ago. One of the counselors set several of the poems to music; I still get one of the songs stuck in my head:
In youth my wings were strong and tireless
But I did not know the mountains
Inb age I knew the mountains
But my weary wings could not follow my vision.
Genius is wisdom and youth, wisdom and youth.

Richard Cory isn't Spoon River, it's by Edwin Arlington Robinson.
