    I'm looking for a dark gothic poem that involves LOVE and SACRIFICE but then knowing that in the end they are still unloved and betrayed by the other in the end.

    Help! I want to use this poem in a piece I'm writing, but I don't know & can't find the author. The poem is reminiscent of James Whitcomb Riley's work, late 19th Century, early 20th Indiana poet. I can't find it in his works. Here's the poem or part that I've heard:

    'If there ain't George Brown,
    A-sittin' under that tree.
    Whatcha doin' there, George, sleepin'?
    Nope, just a-waitin' for the dinner bell to ring, I be.'

    Can anyone ID the poet or name of the poem? Thanks, Don

    I am looking for poems that are good for choral readings...like 'Casey at the Bat'. This is for an adult readers' theater group. All suggestions appreciated.

    Hi. I am looking for a poem that I read many years ago, and only have vague memories of its' contents. Though I remember it to be very touching, and it may be suitable to read at my brothers wedding. It was about an old man who writes a letter to, and/or gives his wife a rose, on their wedding anniversary. It is not until the end of the poem that you discover that his wife has passed. I would also appreciate any suggestions on more quirky, unconventional poems to read during a civil wedding ceremony. Thank you for any ideas.

    I am looking for a poem for which I have not the author's name or title of the poem. The only line I can think of is 'loose the baleful lion snap down the frosty bars of its cage'. Anyoine know that one?

    I have been looking for a poem that my father said he learned in school. All he can remember is 'you're right my boy/lift up your head/and look like a gentleman, sir' or something like that. He couldn't remember exactly. Any ideas?

      Could find only a snippet view of this poem in a Google book search; however, it is evidently printed in full in Songs and Sayings of an Ulster Childhood by Alice Kane.

    I'm looking for a poem I must have read 30 years ago. It was a heart opening story of a mother bat caring for her young. There was some reference to her soft fur...It really touched me.

    Any ideas?
