    I once read a poem called simply 'you'. I thought I remembered it being one of Rudyard Kipling's but, equally, I remembered it being written Anon. Can anyone help in identification and, more especially, with the words?

      All I can tell you is that it is not Kipling, whose complete poems are at: http: //www.poetryloverspage.com/poets/kipling/kipling_ind.html

    I'm looking for a poem written by Mary Oliver that was published in The New Yorker. Unfortunately, I don't remember the title and I don't know how long ago it was published because I keep my New Yorkers forever. It was fairly long and not so much about nature. I searched the New Yorker archives but they're not yet searchable. If anyone could help me with this I'd really appreciate it.

    Hi everybody,
    My late grandfather used to recite a poem he learnt by heart when he was a schoolboy. It began with the line 'I strolled outside the city gates and lingered for a while.' I would love to find out more about this poem and its author. Many thanks, Andrew

    My great aunt told us a rhyme that was to go with the little white damage marks on fingernails. Starting with the thumb, she said they told your fortune:
    Friends - thumbs
    Foes - index finger
    Heartaches - middle finger
    Beaus - ring finger
    Journey's to go - Pinkie

    Has anyone else ever heard of this, and can you tell me where it may have originated?
