    I wish you will include some Mario Benedetti, Idea VilariƱo and Marosa Di Giorgio Poems.And some about Borges poetry doenst seem to be a lot to ask.Their work should be amongst the Universal Literature.
    Nice place as this, I am glad to found.
    Regards from the Cow.

    Hello
    I wonder if anyone can help.
    I remember parts of a funny poem from school (many many moons ago) and would love to find the whole poem again. THese are some of the lines......


    'deggs I said, deggs I said, what in the world are deggs I said...
    'scramble deggs said Billy'!

    'teggs I said, teggs I said, what in the world are teggs I said,
    poach teggs said Billy'....


    Hopefully someone out there will know what I am on about, as my daughter thinks I am barmy! !

    Some 20 years ago I was given a poem that was written from the perspective of a wife loosing her husband and the mother's perspective of loosing her son.
    The feelings they each had and to whom the loss was greater.

    I'm looking for either a poem or a quote, it may be by an indian poet, it roughly it goes like this:

    I've been to many countries,
    But in my country there is only one town,
    and in that town, one house,
    and in that house, one room,
    and in that room one bed,
    and in that bed one woman..and she means more to me than anything...

    That's VERY rough...but gets the point across...can anyone help me find it?

    Blessings to all,
    S

    PLEASE HELP ME...I am looking for a poem I heard some years ago. The poem was written from the point of view of father that tried to make his young son act as an adult - not the age he was. The father then regretted what he had done a said he should have let his son be just what he was, a happy child and not expect him to be what he is not - an adult

    I came across a poem which I loved, but I have totally forgotten the title and poet, I believe it could be Hardy but having searched many of his poems I am doubting this. The subject of the poem was stars and the distance of them, but the basis of the subject was unrequited love and how despite it being unrequited we should love anyway? ! ? ! Any ideas would be brilliant? ! ? !

    i'm trying to find a poem my teacher read to my english class a few years ago (unfortunately, i've long since lost contact with the teacher) .

    the only line i can remember is 'if the band were playing louder, and a little more in tune'...and i believe there may have been something about soup. food of some kind, anyhow. i'm fairly certain it was set in a restaurant. and involved love. i think 'tune' was a rhyme for 'spoon', but i don't remember what the line was that ended in 'spoon'.

    i've tried googling the one line i remember...but to no avail. if anybody has any idea what it could possibly be, i'd be really happy.
