    i'm looking for a poem posted by someone in the on-going contest on this site. It was about bridge and a castle of clay crumbling down and finding yourself and your place. i don't remember the name of the poem only that it had the word " Bridge" in it. I know it's not much to go by but I really hope to find this poem.. It was the best entry among all I read.

    I can't seem to locate a poem by William Packard that sounded something like: " Everything is going to be all right, and even if it isn't, everything is going to be all right." Can anyone help?

      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

    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.
