    Hi Everyone,
    A very touching poem comes to mind that I read in a daily newspaper a few years back, the author laments about growing old and yearns for his childhood back. I think it was lewis Carol or Kipling.If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful

      It is supposed to be from a poem by Villon: 'Autre Ballade.' But I can't find this line in any translation on the web and I do not read French very well, so can't really tell about it.

    this is a song and I can't remember who sings it. It goes, ' tomorrow, things wont be the same, tomorrow, life will be a different game, but right now I am with you and together we can make it thru, da da daa da da dada, forever, our love might have last, forever, we'll go too fast, but right now I am with you and together we can make it thru da da da dada dada da, we live in a world with carnivals and clowns and buildings to the sky that make us wonder why etc.. Anybody remember this?

    Hello all, I am looking for a poem about a true friend/soulmate. Not sure who it was written by but I first read it on a card around 1993. The description- Kind of long, not sappy and it describes the similarities, thoughts, and how two friends/soulmates are to each other. Describes how it is rare to have the such true closeness. Describes the way a soulmate is. Thanks in advance.

    Can anyone think of a poem that has a theme of 'becoming stonger' or something similar to that. Thanks for any help :)

    I am looking for a poem 'Our Guardians' by Carl Dennis. Actually, the part of this poem is published in VQR but the remainder of it is available only to paid subscribers. I would be very grateful if someone could send me the final part of the poem.
