    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.

      have you read 'the murder of lidice', by edna st. vincent millay? it's based on the overnight desctruction of a czechoslovakian village by the nazis. it's very long, and very good.

    I am looking for a poem that I heard in a film. Sorry to be so unspecific!

    It was by a father writing about his daughter Kate and how she would grow up and not be the same little Kate that he knew now.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    I'm looking for a poem about a fallen soldier.

    It reads something like, 'Rest your eyes you held the line' or something like that.

    I remember reading it while I was in Iraq and it brought tears to my eyes. It was a very well written piece of work!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I looking for a poem that I heard quoted in a movie once.
    I believe it was a classic movie, maybe even black and white, I'm thinking Carey Grant or someone like that. Or that could be completely erroneous and it was just a feel the producers were going for. The poem was quoted by a woman and it was something about the attributes she was looking for in a man. Not too this, not too that etc.
    The man in the movie was evesdropping and overheard her and later quoted it back to her and she was impressed, she thought he was well-read and well-educated to know the quote.
    Now I'm desperately trying to figure out what the poem is.
    If this is familiar to anyone please email me at baileygirl42@yahoo.ca
    Thanks! !

    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.

      Apparently there's a poem with that title in the collection 'The Floor Keeps Turning', by Shirley Kaufman, but I don't have a copy of it ready to hand, so I don't know if it's the one you're looking f ... more

    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!
