Looking For A Poem
(2/5/2008 12:17:00 PM)
I am looking for the long version of Hickory Dickory Dock that includes the verse The cill was just a leap away and quicker than a minute, mousey landed on the tart and stuck his face right in it. The cherry juice came bubbling out and stained his fur quite pink, so mousey had to take a shower inside the kitchen sin, etc. etc.
I had this in book form about 30 years ago for my own children, but would now like to read it to my grandchildren.
Can someone help?

Oh dear where do I start? Been torturing myself trying to recall details of this poem from my scooldays 40 years ago. No title or poets name known but it is a well known classic. It is about a highwayman type character that arrives on horseback for what we are led to believe is a pre arranged meeting. The inn is deserted and it is midnight. Eventually he simply leaves by shouting the one line i can remember 'tell them that I came..' I recall it was a superb poem but have such little detail to help me recover it. Help anyone please? ?Replies for this message:

I didn't quite get the story-line correct. It was the innkeeper's daughter who sacrificed her life to warn her lover (the highwayman) . It's years since I've read that poem, but I thoroughly enjoyed r ... more

I received an e-mail from poemhunter that Jenna Howard has sent me a message (which hopefully is a reply on my request below sent on the 4th of January) .

I have the following words and would like to know what the poems` title and who the poet is (the words and order could be slightly different) :
'Drawn from the bubbling fountains,
filled from the limits main,
pent in steely heavens,
clouds in low thunder complain,
the sheep come bleat bleat, over the road.'

Interesting. I also received a 'Jenna Howard sent you a message. Please click to read the message, ' and when I click on the link, nothing comes up. What's the deal? Some kind of phishing expedition?

Thank you for letting me visit here. I'm looking for a humorous poem that my great uncle would recite at our family reunions. I don't know if the title is 'The Outhouse' or not, and don't recall ever hearing the author's name. The gist of the poem is about a child who used the facility, and got stuck in the grownup's hole. The last line goes 'even though I'm grown, I still use the children's hole', or close to that. I would greatly appreciate any assistance that will be provided.
thank you. Trace

Please help. This poem is all over the web, but I'd like to find it in print.
It has been attributed to Anonymous but I've also seen reference to it being found in a magazine, written by a girl named Brooke A. Morris.
Can someone tell me the definitive author, and if you know where I can find it in print?
More afraid of not flying
than of falling
More afraid to hide away my feelings
than of bawling
More afraid to sit in silence
than to speak up for myself
More afraid to sit back and watch
than to stick up for someone else
More afraid to close my mind
than to open my eyes and see...
More afraid of not living
Than of dying

Apologies in advance if this lowers the tone of your discussions to doggerel, but I'm searching for a children's poem my mum used to read to me 40 years ago, which I'd like to share with my three-year-old. I've failed to find it on any search engines, so this is my final stab. Does anyone knows the rest of it from these first lines. Many thanks...
