Looking For A Poem
(10/15/2007 10:37:00 PM)
someone please let me know who is the author of this poem...
I read news, shake my head
Do they really think we are dumb?
They are politicians, privateers & thives
All part of a large sum...
All wethink of the cost of gas
Suplies smaller than the demand
Money is cheep commodity
If your father brother have died in war
The service, all for 'people' they say
They stick out their chests & boat
Most of them talk about peace& poverty
But they don't have any solution
The politicians their friends& rich
Again they will get what they want
While 'we' keep hopes at bay
They are buying BMW's and Mercedes...
Is at down to write some poetic rhymes
But it seems not fair
Oh! Just look at the bright side
Well! NO I won't I can't
Please forgive me it struck a nerve
Of someone's political view
I will try to write about love& peace
If we see a better day...!

Has anyone heard from SGT Daniel Chapman, a poet soldier currently in Iraq and listed on this site as TEARS FROM A SOLDIERS EYES? I have been trying to get in touch with him since August and am really worried. If you have heard from him after August 8,2007, please post a note here to that effect, just to ease my mind. And if you are able to contact him by other than a 'message to the poet' please let him know that Kim is trying to reach him under the account of Susan Banks. Daniel is just a friend I met on this site who I believe will someday be an accomplished poet. Thanks.

Ive been reading a book for gr12 english called 'Not Wanted on the Voyage', by Timothy Findley. I need to a find a poem or two that can be linked to the theme of the story, if anyone's read the story if you could find some poems that relate to it, if not poems on religion, animals, weather, fanaticism, etc... also this book is the story of noahs ark if that helps.
thanks a lot

Hey all, I was watching an Olympic documentary, and they quoted an unknown poet, I don't know if it's an entire poem, but I can't quite recall the quote, it was something like:
'I walk this road only once, therefore all the good I might do must be done now? '
I can't really recall it after that very first part, if you know the entire quote, please let me know, that would be fantastic, thanks!

Looking for a poem that I read in a poetry book in primary school. It has a very strong rhythm to it - which is perhaps why I remember it so well. I thought it was by John Clare but can't find it in any of his anthologies and it doesn't really seem his style. All I remember is the lines 'Its only the wind in the trees they said - its only the wind in the trees'. Such a line would occur at the start of each verse and then the real meaning would be expanded on in the rest of the verse. ie. ' they knew not that deep in the darkness, the flowers were awakening again ' (or some similar words) . The idea was the rebirth of Spring in the wildness of winter - if I remember it correctly! Hope someone's got an answer!

COMIC POEMS I'm looking for short comic poems. I teach a little poetry workshop for people with MS (I have MS too) . I have a hard time finding shorter poems that are humorous that are good for reading out loud. The people in the class that are shy are more willing to read funny poems. If someone can guide me to a source for these or suggest some poems I would appreciate it.

After searching for my Grandfather who left my Mom when she was only 1 to go off to war, we finally found him VERY much alive and well....We have all been reunited as a family and his birthday is coming up in October. I'm searching for a poem that would be good for this scenario. I want him to know that even though he's been gone for so long that I still love him even as he was never gone... And somehow try to wish him a happy for the 41 years of my life that I missed wishing him a happy birthday....
If anyone here has any ideas please let me know...
