    Does anybody know a good free site that has some of Robert Fitzgeralds poems?
    Thanks.

    I'm looking for two poems, I believe by Santanya.
    First one contains '...with images you tended under foreign skies, far away from your own land.'
    Second one contains '...this column has a hole. Have you seen the queen of the dead? '

    Many thanks.

    June Jordan and Maya Angelou Experts:

    I am looking for a poem, written by one of these women, on the subject of using 'honesty' as a guise for cruelty...something to the effect of 'beware of the woman who starts out with 'forgive me for being honest, but...''. It's been many years since I read this poem, I don't know the title and I can't seem to locate it anywhere. Does this poem sound familiar to anyone?

    I would appreciate any leads for tracking it down. Thanks.

    I'm trying to find a poem for someone. The poem was about the love between a young girl from a town and an outlaw? (I'm sure he was some kind of criminal) . It ends with soldiers coming to the house and the man finding out and trying to come back for his girl. In the end she shoots herself because she knows he is coming back and wants to drive him away. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

    Also, it's a pretty long poem from what I remember.

      Your description sounds very much like 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes, a great old English poem. Cheers, David Lewis Paget

      Two poems with 'desiderata' in them, Boys Dream by Todd Garland and Confusing Chat by Gil Gregorio Sr. One mentions about lines from Desiderata but that's all I can help you with and it's probably no ... more

    Hello everyone. I'm desperately in need of help and hope someone may be able to come to my rescue...

    I'm looking for the title of a Hölderlin poem which contains the line -

    'Firm in compassion the eternal heart'

    If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be eternally grateful.

    Many thanks, George.

    The poem is called Too True, Too Often. It starts off like this:
    Too often we don't realize what we have until it's gone. Too often we wait too late to say 'I'm sorry - I was wrong.'
    Can someone help? ? ? ?
