    I am looking for a poem about October's days. The first verse goes like this:
    'October's days are nearly past, today's the day, it is the last. At this time it is Halloween, Ghosts and witches often seen.'
    Does anyone know where I can find this poem? It was in a large book of poems and rhymes that I bought my son in 1985 and I can't remember the name of the book. Another poem that was in the book was called Elli the Elephant. It started like this: 'Ellie the elephant blushed with shame, she had forgottne her name, her name.'

    I am searching for a poem in which a lady waits patiently at home for a lover to return, there is a bust of him on the mantlepiece and whilst all else is covered in dust there is none on the lips of the bust. A line may well be something like 'what lips unseen have kissed yon.....'

    I recited a poem when I was a kid and I think the name was the Animals' Masquerade but I cannot find it anywhere...I remember the first few phrases...any help would be appreciated..

    The other night when the moon was big, I saw a possum wearing a wig. He hurried away in a minute or so and I followed along on tipee toe. We came to a place by the garden gate, I had never been there so late. To my surprise before my eyes there animals gathering of every size. They were having a ball by the light of moon while bullfrogs sang a strange sounding tune.

    That is all I can remember...anyone please?

    Years ago I cut a poem out of a women's magazine... I know it's a long shot that anyone here will know of it, but here goes:

    The poem was spoken by a woman who was observing some stray cats and kittens who were living in her garage. She was pondering what a hard life they were living, always concerned with survival. Then she noticed one of the kittens playing with a leaf. And this is the line I remember (paraphrasing except for the part in quotes, and believe me, I have searched for this phrase!) :

    Given that the cats were having to scrounge for food and that they were always in danger from predators how could they still 'have the heart for play.'

    I thought the title of the poem was 'Ghost Cats, ' but I've had no luck searching on that title either. Any help would be appreciated.

    I remember this one line from a poem from high school. 'Come back to me and I will make you happy with my smile'. Do you know what poem this is? Thank you!

    I'm looking for a poem - an older poem (perhaps... 'classic'?) - about a man who looked happy on the outside, greeted people in the street, and then went home and killed himself. I thought that the name 'Robert' was in the text, but maybe I'm wrong. All searches on that haven't turned up anything.
    Any ideas?

      I think the poem you are looking for is 'Richard Corey' by Edwin Arlington Robinson.
