    Hey guys,

    I'm in a desperate need of a poem about Los Angeles;

    The reason: I'm a German student at my last year, consequently I'm (hopefully) going to make my diploma (the so- called Abitur) this year. Therefore I have to write a research paper about a certain topic and because my 'Advanced- Course' is English, I chose the following topic:

    'Patriotism in the United States: the presentation of American cities in selected songs and poems'

    I tried really hard to find one...but unfortunately I did not succeed...
    so I thought or hoped that somebody here knows a few and thus could help me, because you have better 'relations' or possibilities.
    It is really really urgent!

    Any kind of help is cordially welcome!

    Thank you very very much in advance!

    I am trying to find a poem about a 'boy cat' and a 'girl cat'. I believe that it originally appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine (UK edition) maybe 10 years ago and it may have been written by Irma Kurtz. It detailed how they grew old together and was very moving. Having recently lost my 'boy cat' I would love to read it again!

    I am looking for the origin of this line of poetry: 'How body from spirit does slowly unwind until we are pure spirit at the end'. Vice President Al Gore used it in his father's eulogy and it was quoted on a recent episode of The West Wing.

    There's a poem called 'Look Closer' [also known as 'Crabbit Old Woman'] by Phyllis McCormack. I once read a poem that had been written from the nurpoint of view as a sort of 'reply' poem. I don't know the name of it but it talks about them knowing that she's a person and wishing they had more time etc. please help if you have a clue what i'm talking about. thanks!

      I found it! This topic is ridiculously old and you probably found it by now, but if not, let me know and I'll type it up for you. (I found this during my own search for it) : (

    Long time ago in my school I read a poem 'The Muddlehead from Petushki'. It went something like this 'He will sctarch his bread and put butter on his head'. I am looking for this poem but cant seem to find it. Would any one who happens to have this poem, share it with me?

    I'm looking for a poem I read as a child. I think it may have been written by William Blake or may Keats, but I am probably wrong. There is a great couplet about a bird (a robin maybe, or sparrow) and the bird's perserverance. Unfortunately, that's all I can was a wonderful poem and any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    PS. I know I didn't give you much info to go on, but its all I could remember.

      Possibly 'A robin red breast in a cage Puts all Heaven in a rage' It's from Auguries of Innocence, by William Blake. Other birds and animals are mentioned.
