    Hi Guys
    I am trying to identify the poem this verse from. It was one of grandfathers favourites. Has anyone got any clues please?

    “The tracks that we together trod still wind oe’r hill and plain.

    Still falls the diamond pointed dew, still falls the freshening rain.

    May there be birds among the trees, may there be blossoms, blown across the road,

    that last long road, where you have gone alone”.

    Hello to everyone here, you are a wonderful community.


    I'm looking for a french poem of a rather minor poet
    which I had read years ago.

    It is talking about a world that is made of the material
    which constructs the last step of a staircase when
    descending it in the dark.

    I would be grateful if anyone could help me with this.
    I've been searching for it, for months.


    Thank you in advance,
    Nikolaos

    I am looking for a poem that was written by a blind African American poet. If I am not mistaking he was graduated from one of Chicago universities and it was in 30s or 40s. I remember the First few line and it starts with " when all the poems on the theme have been written and all the night and day dreams dreamt without prophecy and fulfillment. When hop sustain us no longer......
    Although I checked Walton, or Bolton none was him. Any suggestions please?

    MIRROR WALL

    Out of control
    We broke the chains that tied us whole
    A fire inside us, it melts our words
    Every secret has its own truth
    The more we keep it, the more it shows
    I'm not saying the words that are right
    And you keep doing actions that you hate
    The brain collides the beats of the heart
    Though it will not pause, more it will not stop
    Same question plays when we lie in our bed
    Rather to eject it, we load more instead
    We can't kill the living pictures in our head
    Wake or sleep it stays as we live
    But one thing pushes us to the wrong way
    It keeps dividing us as we step
    We want to look back but we're stiff necked
    I have a thousand words to say
    It's hard to let go all promises
    Have to pretend you are gone and dead
    Know you'll do the same thing as i did

    hello, I am looking for a poem i heard years ago. it involved " god" or someone who he/she has met in the afterlife explaining how he/it/she is exactly who he is asking. explaining that throughout his life he will be everyone from the poor on the street to the rich, and that we are all the same. i can't for the life of me think of how to find it.

    I am seeking the title and poet of a poem in the classical style; I believe its subject was Endymion, or more properly, a statue of Endymion that had fallen and lies broken on the sands, prompting the poet's narrative as he gazes upon the remains. I had thought it might be Yeats', but I think that's wrong...
    Any help would be welcome-

      Keats (not Yeats) wrote Endymion, but a poem about a fallen statue sounds more like Shelley's Ozymandias.
