      However, if your photograph is an indication, you have not been doing any running with anyone (or even by yourself) for a number of years, Allan.

    Hello Everybody,
    Can anyone help me with the following:
    My daughter read 'Catcher in the Rye' by Salinger. The title of the book refers to a poem by Robert Burns (according to the book)
    'If a body meet a body coming through the rye etc.'
    Can anybody let me know which poem this is and where I can find it?
    Thanks to you
    Leen

      You'll find poems by burns on this site (haven't checked..) and on the web, since he is the favoured poet of all Scots... but the actual text starts 'Gin a body meet a body...' 'gin' being Scots for ... more

    Everyone can rest assure that no one has been banned by, or because of anyone else. The site is screwed up. When you type a poem, comment, or what have you, sometimes you will get a request to login again. Do the login, then use your back button, and click till you come back to your poem, or comment, then click submit, and it will go through. This happens to me all the time.

    What percentage of poems, do you think, are created through nostalgia? And how important is nostalgia in the poetic process, if at all? I say this because it seems to have a very strong effect on why I write poetry- I continually find myself getting lost in the past and idolizing it. Tonight I spent a good deal of time looking up old classmates on the internet and feeling very distant from everything and looking for contact; but don't most people simply forget and move on? Are there any really good poems out there which seem to focus on nostalgia?

    I actually have to say thanks to PH for mentioning Pinter in the discussions- I read his stuff and really liked it- Ordered his 100 Poems by 100 Poets book off ebay- can't wait to read it- Find it interesting that the few works he has on Poemhunter, overall, are not rated highly.

    In the other forum I just reposted the August Kleinzaler poem that Adam posted a couple of days ago. I really like it but could use some help figuring out the final stanza.

    I've been having fun poetry hound but really really must go now - work to do. I'll catch 'the ego has landed' later.
