      Try " Two Tramps in Mud Time" by Robert Frost. It has lots of wisdom and if read slowly enough, reaches close to 6 minutes.

    What does " online" mean next to a poem you have published?

      The only poem I know about petrels is " The Song of the Stormy Petrels" by Maxim Gorky, in which the petrel symbolizes the Russian Revolution

    Respected fellow poets. I would be most happy if you read through my simple poem 'End Of Existence' which is written regarding Female infanticide. The link is given below. Please vote and comment. With good wishes to all.

    It was either in Harper's or the Atlantic Monthly several years ago. I believe the poet was a man. I can't remember it, but there is imagery I recall:

    Something about how hugging sister had some bunting, buffer to keep them separated, safe. But hugging brother was (something) like: a fall off a cliff requiring wings.

    The ending imagery was of soot or ash in the air. Rising from a chimney. Perhaps like a bird of some kind.

    I can't really remember more than this.

    I know exactly who wrote that poem. It was written by a guy in my sociology class at Foothill College back in May of 2002. His name was David Otero. He went to Foothill College at that time and wrote it for a Sociology assignment. Don't remember exactly what the assignment was but I know exactly who wrote it. He was a totally funny guy. Surprised everyone when he read it to the class. Completely showed another side of himself. Not too many guys I know write like that. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, give him a shout-out! And you know prof's make sure that it was not plagiarized.
