    Hello everyone. I happily stumbled across this site during my search for a poem (no surprise, there) . I can see that there are lots of people searching on here, but I'm going to add my own, anyway.
    It's a poem by G F Bodley (primarily an architect) from the 19th century that refers to 'love's palace'. It inspired a stunning painting by pre-Raphaelite painter John Melhuish Strudwick called, funnily enough, Love's Palace, which hangs in Sudley House in Liverpool. I'm not even sure that the poem was ever published, but if anyone can offer any clues, or even pointers for doing a more thorough search myself I would be much obliged.

      All I could find was a couplet: Let come what may, for that grim Fate decides, Love rules the day, and Love, enthroned, abides.

    I'm looking for a poem that ends with the line 'I imagine I'm with you again'. I read it somewhere and I can't find it anywhere!

    I am trying to find a poem. I think it is called 'Evolution', but I cannot remember the name of the poet. It is a satire of evolution, and I just love it! One of the lines goes something like this, 'and once I told my tale, I got a PhD' or something like that, if that helps.

    Many years ago our English teacher wrote on the blackboard the poem:
    Forever has three syllables
    And none of them were slurred
    When she said 'Forever, Dear'
    All that has occurred
    All that is and is to be
    Gathered in one word.
    I tried to turn and look at her
    but my eyes were blurred.
    I've never heard a little girl
    Used so big a word!

    Please, help me to find the name of the author of this beautiful poem.

    I've had in my possession for sometime an 8 verse poem entitled 'Departed Friends'. I cannot identify the author. It's the original handwritten copy and has been in my families possession for many many years.The poem is too beautiful and too good not to have been published somewhere!
    It is old world handwriting so I'm having trouble making out the signature.
    It is signed E. A. Green or E. Charles(ct.or A abbreviated) Green, Greenland Cottage, VA, Monday, Feb.7,1876
    Any help anyone can offer will be appreciated.
    Here is the first verse:
    Many dear friends I've seen depart
    And bourne beyond the gloom
    The gloomy entrance of the grave
    The dark and silent tomb
    They still are going one by one
    Till many now have gone
    Gone to the cold and silent grave
    And I am following on
    Thanks for all help

    I am looking for a poem that I read shortly after 9/11. It was something like 'what is this death' and some lines included, '..what is it but an inconvenience' and 'I am here, just in the next room'. The poem is very peaceful and serene. I have searched everywhere and cannot find this poem. If anyone can help! It was published in a sunday newspaper magazine, like Parade. Thank you!
