    I'm looking for a poem about how as a teenager we think we know everything but the older we get the more we realize how little we know - any ideas?

    I am looking for a humorous poem concerning the nose. I would compare it to 'To A Louse' by Robert Burns nd I believe from that era. It concerns different types of nose as well as different ways of blowing your nose. Some people open the tissue and look at it like a jewel.

    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

      I think maybe you're looking for the piece by Max Ehrmann? It starts out 'Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence'. You can find a copy of it at: http: // ... more
