    Hi, I'm very eager to find a poem for my father. Unfortunately I do not know the name or author, although my father is certain that the poem is called or is about a murder. He read the poem at school in the late 40's / early 50's and has been trying to find it ever since. I would very much appreciate anyone's help as I'm at a loss!

    The only line he can remember is as follows:

    'T'was night, and not a single star shone in the firmament on high'.

    The only poem I keep finding is called 'The Spacious Firmament on High' by Joseph Addison and that's not the one.

    If anyone can help I'd appreciate it soooo much!

    Thanks, Rachael.

    I have been trying to find a copy of Lousia May Alcotts poem 'Sunlight' that was first published in Peterson's Magazine in September of 1851 (vol 20 no.3) Page number 110 It was authored under the pseudonym 'Flora Fairfield' It was her first published work. It is a poem in five stanzas. The first line: 'It comes from its far away home in the night'. I have been using every source I can find and still no luck locating this poem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have been looking for a poem by Dixie Willson, called 'Honey Bear'. It starts off, 'Once upon a summer in the hills by the river
    Was a deep green forest where the wild things grew.
    There were caves as dark as midnight - there were tangled trees and thickets
    And a thousand little places where the sky looked through.'
    If anyone could help with the full text for the poem, I'd be delighted!

    I'm looking a line in a poem by James Wright that's something like this, 'I want to write the poems of a grown man.' I think it was in the poem whose title is something like this, 'To the Graduating Class of West Point.' I used to have the poem in Wright's Selected or Collected poems, but I lent the book out and now want to re-read the poem, but can't find the book nor remember the title well nor the exact line. Thanks for the help.
