    I'm looking for a poem which I read several years ago...some of the lines are: The night has a thousand eyes, the day but one...there's more to this poem and I believe that a lyrical poet named May Delano Rogers wrote it but I can't find any of her poems either.She used to get her poems published in the poetry magazine The Lyricist..

      " The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" is by the Victorian poet Francis William Bourdillon. You can find it on the Poemhunter site.

    I am searching for a poem written during the first world war The poet, while on leave, went for a country walk and saw an elderly man ploughing a field with a horse. A large tree had fallen into the field and the ploughman had to plough around it. The poet held a conversation with the farmer and was told that all the young men of the village had gone to war so there was no one left to remove the tree. He went on to explain that the field should have been ploughed a month before and the crop should already be growing and that many from the village would not return to see it harvested. Shortly after this the poet died on the battlefield. any help would be appreciated,
    Jeff Jackson

    Please help,
    I've a few lines from a poem I am keen to source;

    " I watched her clip their wings one day,
    she said she'd keep them safe that way" .....
    " And in the night I heard the cry,
    Of wild swans soaring through the sky" ..

    and that's all I can recall. Any ideas?

    I am looking for two poems.

    In the first, the poet is remarking on how to a fly (I think that is the creature, but may be wrong) , his own awareness of the world is a vast to him as ours is to us.

    In the second, the poet is considering how gently the mother bat cares for her young, how soft her fur, how beautiful she is...it's been decades.

    If anyone can lead me to either of these poems, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Lynne

    Hi! I read a poem a while ago and I can't for the life of me remember what it is called or who wrote it. It's about a man who is in a field (I think of wheat) with his scythe, and he is surrounded by neighbors who tend sheep. It is mentioned in the poem that he sometimes catches the reflection of his face in his scythe, like the reflection of the light of the sun in the moon. That's all I remember. Any help is appreciated. I would really like to find this poem!

    What is the theme of this poem?
    This is part of a poem. Anybody knows?

    But yesterday I should have thought me blest
    To stand high-pinnacled upon the peak
    Of middle life and look adown the bleak
    And unfamiliar foreslope to the West,
    Where solemn shadows all the land invest
    And stilly voices, half-remembered, speak
    Unfinished prophecy, and witch-fires freak
    The haunted twilight of the Dark of Rest.
    Yea, yesterday my soul was all aflame
    To stay the shadow on the dial's face
    At manhood's noonmark! Now, in God His name
    I chide aloud the little interspace
    Disparting me from Certitude, and fain
    Would know the dream and vision ne'er again.

      All I know is that Ambrose Bierce uses it in his Devil's Dictionary to illustrate his definition of yesterday: " The infancy of youth, the youth of manhood, the entire past of age." He gives ... more
