    I am going nuts trying to figure out who wrote this poem i've had for over twenty years. I would have sworn it was Sylvia plath or Ann sexton, but i can't locate it any of their works. I also searched every way i could think of, and it doesn't come up. It's called 'The Hunger Artist'. It's basically about a woman scared about her aging process.

    If anyone knows anything about this poem, please inform me, i've become an obsessed maniac on the computer searching it. I have a copy of the poem, but no author.

    Has anyone heard of a poet named Tias? I think he might be German and would have lived in the 20th century. I am not sure if Tias is his name, it might be the name of his book or something like that. Thank you so much!

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any wonderful poems about the passion behind writing, or the passion of creativity, or some other strong emotion behind creativity and art. I need a poem that was written long enough ago that it would be in public domain now, and one that is more than 10 lines, but wouldn't be more than 2 or so minutes if read aloud. So does anyone have any favorite poems that fit? Thanks!

      One of my favourites is Herbert's 'I Would Like to Describe'. It revolves around one's passion behind trying to express/create, mostly in relation to clichés. I WOULD LIKE TO DESCRIBE I would ... more

The Rogey Pogey bogey man is rolling throught my housey pouse, the rogey pogey bogey man is rolling through my housey pouse. I would love my young children to learn this poem but can not find it any where, I don't know who wrote it and hope someone can help

    Is there an excerpt from ELEGY FOR THE DEPARTURE by Zbigniew Herbert that might be called... or starts with... 'The Gods Show Themselves'?

    Part of it describes these birdlike creatures, originally stoic, spinning & hurling themselves into a circle of 'godbones' & feathers.

    It ends with the narrator finding himself on a 'familiar highway' (something to this effect) .

    If anyone recognizes this poem please, please, please confirm or correct it for me. I'd really very much like to find it again in its entirety. Thanks!

    I am looking for a song. This is a duet (female/male) from 70' or 80'. I don't know the name of sinders, neither the song name. The text is like this: 'Do you love me? Yes I do, more than words can say. Do you need me... etc.'

    I once heard an australian poem about a man returning from war, I don't remember many words but he spoke of a moonlit path and called australia the land of sunburnt children. I loved this poem. Please help.

    Something kind of like this... this one is good, maybe just a bit over the top... I'd like to have a few to choose from.

    Good unconventional stuff.

    As an assignment for my communications class, I need to recite a three minute poem. I'd like to find a poem by an author that would be unknown to most people, I guess you could say an 'amateur' poem. Something that takes about 3 minutes to recite, preferably something edgy, not riddled with swear words, but something most people might not feel comfortable reciting in a college class, I guess you could say something that is borderline acceptable for class.

    It doesn't really matter what the poem is about or who the author is, but preferably modern, written in the last few years by someone who isn't a recognized or published poet. The only stipulation for the class is that it takes 3 minutes to recite, the other 'requirements' are just what I would prefer to find.

    So, if anyone here can point me towards a poem on this site, I would appreciated it. I've looked around quite about myself, but haven't found what I'm looking for. You can either send me a message, reply to this post, or email me.

    Thanks in advance, Jason.
