    Hi There,
    I'm looking for a short to medium length poem to set to music. I'm looking for a well written poem that describes a life changing expirience. (death, loss, morbid) and then the last stanza needs to have a sense of renewed hope. Something like, this happened and is really not good, but life will go on.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    In 1969, I think it was, PBS had a special on Appalachian folkways or music. A man recited a poem about a father looking out at night and seeing his daughter with a boy by the front gate and fondly remembering his youth and courting a girl (now his wife?) . I don't remember any more than that. It wasn't great art as I recall but a nice folksy romantic poem.

    I'm trying to find a poem in which the narrator is scything barley or wheat, and compares the experience of the wheat to what he feels when he sees the woman he loves. The last line is something like 'what I to the barely, she does to my heart and me.' Anyone know it? I think it's late 1800's-early 1900'2, but I could be way off. Thanks!

    Hi everyone. I'm new here and was wondering if I could get help. Someone close to me has had only one poem published and I know the title but can't find it. It's called You're Lover, Your Friend.

    Hi- I'm looking for a poem by a woman poet (English, I believe) and I know some of it, but not the whole thing. Here is what I remember:
    When I think of something that I had,
    And which is gone and I must do without,
    I sometimes wonder how I can be glad
    Even in Cowslip times when hedgerows sprout.
    It makes me sigh to think on it and yet,
    My days would not be better days, should I forget.
    Thanks!

    Rain is Falling

    Rain, rain, its always raining,
    Rain, rain, I end up saying,
    Rain, rain, please go away now,
    Rain, rain, just leave right now,
    Rain, rain, don’t know how,
    I don’t care how,
    To make my rainy day just go away…

    So I stand,
    in the pouring rain,
    So I can,
    feel the growing pain,
    Of having rain,
    coming down like the Armageddon flame.

    I can see raindrops playing their game,
    Even though they look the same,
    I know that there is more to rain……

    ~Hey guys what do you think about this poem? ?

    Hello everybody!
    First of all I apologize for my request is not exactly about poems I can't find. The problem with the author of the poem. Does anybody know anything about such - I guess - a new poet Tristram Tuna who wrote 'My Spirit Has Left'?
    In particular I don't know if this poet is a male or a female!
    I'd appreciate any advice in any form!

    Here I give you the text of the poem. Enjoy it!

    My spirit has left (to Heaven or Hell) .
    In this world I don't leave very much.
    My old, cold body's an empty shell
    So kindly just treat it as such.

    My life has been filled with places and friends,
    I've had luck that I've mostly enjoyed.
    There's little I'd change, no urge for amends,
    Few regrets as I leave for the void.

    Yet fresh in your memories - in you I live on.
    At parties recount the good times
    And long years from now when you too have gone
    I'll still be alive in my rhymes.

    My grandfather learned a poem in school during the 1930's that said something about a garden gate and 'she was there and so was I'. I would really like to locate this for him but have been unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated.
