    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.

    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/

    I am looking for a poem for my father's funeral. I can't remember the title of the poem...nor the entire text. But it was very touching and I would very much like to read it at his funeral.

    The only things I remember about the poem, it had words listing:
    'I do not normally believe in miracles, but today I ask for just one'...something about a door opening and watch you walk through.

    I know it's not much to go by...but I haven't had luck finding it on the internet. All your help is appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Hey. I'm looking for a poem to have engraved for my mom on my wedding day. I've found some online, but they just aren't special enough. Anyone have any ideas? ?
