    Looking for a poem I read years ago about a woman who has lost one breast (or perhaps both) to cancer and a man who is too uncomfortable about that to be with her in physical intimacy. The image that stands out comes at the end of the poem. She has left him a bowl of fresh flower petals beneath which it is filled with dry, dead bees. I'd love to pass it on to someone and appreciate any help in finding it. Thanks.

    I am looking for a poem written, I am sure, by a female britsh poet.
    The poem was included, I think, in the book 'The Nations Favourite Poems' by the BBC.
    The poem is quite short and was towards the front of the book.
    It was about being a mother and ended in a line similar to this; 'this is my life, pass it on'.
    The author was trying to convey how she had given her life to raise her children.
    I can't get to the library and I desperately need it. I have tried many kinds of searches but without the author or the name of the poem it is proving very difficult.
    I'd be thrilled if someone has the book or knows the poem and can help me!
    Many thanks,

      I don't think the poem is online, being still under copyright. It is 'The Mother' by Anne Stephenson.

    I heard a poem a LONG time ago, and can not remember the title or anything. It was written about/as if an alien watched the earth from above. Seeing the freeway and making mention of how you could see the insides of the creatures. Some had one moving thing/others had lots. (meaning the people in the cars) I am sure this is a VERY OLD poem. Heard it when I was in school, ages ago. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Diane

    I am looking for a poem about a guy who moves to where it snows... He starts out very happy and by the end he is completely miserable and hates the snow. It is very funny and a few years old. If you have it please email me
