Looking For A Poem

    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.

    I am looking for a poem about standing outside at night in the dark under the stars in the snow where the end contains 'e=mc' and 'more beer'.
    I read it back in high school in english class so I suspect it is a relatively known author/poet though the line I remember is a bit sketchy.

    Help me find this fundraiser poem. I believe it is called 'No Ball at All'. It describes getting ready and being at a Ball having a great time. Yet it is imaginary. There is no actual ball for this fundraiser. The poem is a way to fundraise by sending a donation without having to attend an actual event.

    Thanks for your help!

    I am trying to find a poem heard once on poetry please some time ago about a ghost who haunts a house to scare new buyers away but they enjoy it so much he eventually disappears.

    Hi,

    This is a pretty random question, but any help is appreciated. I am not sure if I am looking for a poem or if it was a short story we studied, but the poem/story discussed the inevitability of death. In the poem/story the narrator is hanging from a vine/root and is slipping and waiting for him is death and he understands that no matter what he does eventually he will die.

    Does anyone have an idea of what I am talking about. I thought it might be Tolstoy but I can't find it under his works, anything similar. Any help is appreciated.

    When I was young my mother used to say a line something like this: -
    'For I have loved you/thee Senora, in my fashion.' More recently I think I heard this poem being read. Perhaps they said it was by a Welsh poet. The line fragment '... in my fashion.' kept repeating. The name 'Senora' or perhaps 'Seonora' was sometimes included in this reprise/refrain. Can anyone identify this poem for me. No searches have worked so far on this or other sites. In anticipation, I thank thee. BJG

      You have misheard the name 'Cynara' as the word Senora. The poem, by Ernest Dowson, is on this site: http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/non-sum-qualis-eram-bonae-sub-regno-cynarae/
