  • What poem is this?

    There's a poem I read years ago in an English class of which I can remember only little details. It's nowhere to be found. I've searched the internet to no avail. I seem to remember that it's about a man coming home for his father's (?) funeral after being away. There's a line about the dead man having been a (metaphorical) giant, so many strong people have to carry his coffin. It ends with something about time having made molehills of the mountains of youth (but probably not those exact words).

    I think it must be relatively well-known, otherwise it wouldn't have been part of the curriculum.

    Does anyone know what poem this is?
