    I am looking for poems in the style of Richard Brautigan. Like 'We Stopped at Perfect Days' and 'Lions Are Growing.' Any suggestions?

    In days of yore figuratively, I had seen a poem which commences with-
    'Death be not proud'
    or thereabouts.

    I would like to acquaint myself with the name of this poetry and the poet who had wrote this cryptic one.Many thanks.

    I can't seem to find a poem titled 'A moment', by Mary E. Coleridge.
    I have part of it on my calender, and I'd like to know how the rest reads.

    'The clouds had made a crimson crown,
    Above the mountains high.
    The stormy sun was going down,
    In a stormy sky.

    Why did you let your eyes so rest on me,
    And hold your breath between?
    In all the ages this can never be,
    As if it had no been.'

    some poem by an unknown poet from the time frame 1700 to 1900, from I'm not sure where from it goes like -there is this well and people like fish for light at the end of this well it is only like 4 or 5 lines long and the jest of the poem at the end of all the wishes of the well is hope or something to this nature. This is my very sought after favorite piece and I was hoping someone might have heard of this poem somehow(hoping) .

    I am looking for a poem by Stephen Dunn that is called 'California this is Minnesota Speaking.' For some reason it is not in any of his anthologies. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    Thanks,
    Pete

      According to a Google book search, this can be found in his 1976 book, Full of Lust and Good Usage. It can also be found in A Geography of Poets: An Anthology of the New Poetry by Edward Field.

    Trying to find a poem my husband quoted to me years ago. I can only remember one or two lines and even they may be inaccurate: 'On ______ station we said our goodbyes, the wind brought tears to our eyes....'

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    Im looking for a poem. the details are sketchy but I believe it was by a poet called Barry in the early 1900's and maybe entitled Clouds. There is a reference in the poem to white fire or white dreams of you.

    Any help would be appreciated
