    Hello, my first post. I am trying to find a poem that I read several years ago, and it might have been in an anthology, but I am not sure. It is about a little dog that had died, and the poem was about the little dog's small statue but his giant heart. I seem to remember the name Stoutheart, but nothing comes up in searching that. It might have been bigheart or strongheart or even something else. I remember the writer repeating this new name for the dog being something to do with his being all heart. I believe the poem to have been in a book of poems, perhaps favorite poems. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi, I'm new here and don't know if I am posting in the write place. I am researching poetry from my childhood including Shel Silverstein because he was a favorite of mine when I was a child. One poem in particular caught my eye, 'One Inch Tall', page 55 of 'Where the Sidewalk Ends'. I'm trying to describe the form but can't seem to determine it based on traditional definitions. (i.e., lymrick, haiku, etc.) . Could someone please tell me what form of poem that 'One Inch Tall' is in. Thank you so much.

      To be more specific: Likely you're looking for 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Good luck with the albatross. anw

    Two, Is about alittle girl who calls the operator for the number to heaven

    Three, Is about alittle girl going to school, and is supose to bring their dad but she couldn't. And everyone thought he was a dead beat but when she got up she said that her dad died in the Twin tower and that he leaves her a single rose.

    I really hope someone can help me, I have been trying to find these poems for ages.

    Help...I need to find a poem and the sad thing is I am unsure of the title as well as most of the text. It may be called Time or What is Time? Some of the text reads:
    I asked an aged man with hoary hairs, wrinkled and curled with worldly cares; What is time?

    Time is the warp of Life. Go tell the young, the gay to reap it well.
