    I am interested in world classic poems even if they are older. The great Italian Poet Dante's Divine comedy is one among them. I likes to read the portions in such enthusiasm and pride in reading classic poems as a poem lover. It is also felt to read the reviews of the poems of classic to understand it well.

    I'm looking for a poem which I read several years ago...some of the lines are: The night has a thousand eyes, the day but one...there's more to this poem and I believe that a lyrical poet named May Delano Rogers wrote it but I can't find any of her poems either.She used to get her poems published in the poetry magazine The Lyricist..

      " The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" is by the Victorian poet Francis William Bourdillon. You can find it on the Poemhunter site.

    I am searching for a poem written during the first world war The poet, while on leave, went for a country walk and saw an elderly man ploughing a field with a horse. A large tree had fallen into the field and the ploughman had to plough around it. The poet held a conversation with the farmer and was told that all the young men of the village had gone to war so there was no one left to remove the tree. He went on to explain that the field should have been ploughed a month before and the crop should already be growing and that many from the village would not return to see it harvested. Shortly after this the poet died on the battlefield. any help would be appreciated,
    Jeff Jackson

    Please help,
    I've a few lines from a poem I am keen to source;

    " I watched her clip their wings one day,
    she said she'd keep them safe that way" .....
    " And in the night I heard the cry,
    Of wild swans soaring through the sky" ..

    and that's all I can recall. Any ideas?

    I am looking for two poems.

    In the first, the poet is remarking on how to a fly (I think that is the creature, but may be wrong) , his own awareness of the world is a vast to him as ours is to us.

    In the second, the poet is considering how gently the mother bat cares for her young, how soft her fur, how beautiful she is...it's been decades.

    If anyone can lead me to either of these poems, I'd greatly appreciate it.
