    Looking for a very instructive poem about different birds nesting habits. (written for children, I think about 1930-40) . It begins -
    There was a bird who did not know
    Where to build a nest, and so
    The other birds................

    This poem I'm looking for is about death, and the final lines are something very roughly along the lines of " you've gone to bed, I'll stay a little while longer to tend the embers of the fire that still burn" .
    Any ideas gratefully received!

    I remember this poem my sister found when we were in high school. I would like to find out the name of it and who wrote it.

    Never fall in love my friend, you'll see it does not pay. Although it causes broken hearts, it happens everyday.
    You wonder where he is at night, and if he's being true. One day you're feeling happy, the next you're feeling blue.
    The price you pay if very high, if I could choose from life or death, I think I'd rather die.
    So you see my friend, don't fall in love, you; ll get hurt before you're through.
    You see my friend, I ought to know. I fell in love with you.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! This was back in the 80's if that helps at all. Thanks.

      Sabrina Freeman is listed as the author on the poemhunter site, but other people take credit for it on other web sites. Also, it has a number of variations. I think it is by that old favorite poet, An ... more

    Someone sent me a part of a poem a while ago and I want to find the rest of it. It talks about being more than just a tree...?

    Can anyone help me solve this mystery?

    I am trying to re discover a poem I heard on the radio some years ago. It was a winter or autumnal poem that featured an orange and perhaps roses?Hmm. Not sure about the roses but maybe. I remember being very taken with it. Any thoughts on what it could be?

      Could it be " Oranges" by Gary Soto?That is definitely a winter poem.

    Perpetual Relation

    When I open
    The window of heart
    In the palace of my life,
    Blow jasmine aroma from her bun
    With dew drenched winter breeze,
    Run a thrill through my vein.
    Again drip drops of sweet smile
    From her rosebud lips,
    That wet desert of my solitude.

    Waning moon beckons us
    To the divine door of love
    Where we see the far world
    And gauge its gap.
    While doing so,
    We lasso two minds
    Into one soul
    To complete
    This perpetual relation.

    Please can anyone help me I am desperate to find the poem 'If you push a button' by Takagi Kyozo, I cannot find it anywhere on the internet, the only reference I can find is that it is in a collection of poems by the author in a book called 'How to Cook Women' published in 1998, the book however cannot be purchased anywhere! I have been trying to find this for days and I really need it for my coursework for my GCSE Drama exam.

    If anyone can help me I would be so grateful.

    Heard a poem in primary school back in the 60's and am/was enchanted by the rhythm of it. Opening lines,
    " The road was a ribbon of moonlight
    Beneath the jewelled.... (sky?)
    And the highwayman came, riding, riding, riding........." and that's as far as I get.

    Does anyone know the poem?

      Yes, it is " The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. You can find it on this site.

    so I have this poem that I have heard once and I need to find it again. However, I don't remeber any lines from it. What I do know, is that the author was Russian and some well known Russian who wrote both poetry and prose. The poem described a certain moment - meeting a girl in winter night in countryside, and it was mostly describing how the snowflakes were melting on the girl's hair and face and how beatiful she was and so on...Unfortunately, thats all I can remember. But it should be quite famous one, so I hope it'll be enough.
    Thanks for your advice, all replies appreciated ;)

      Possibly you are thinking of " Meeting" by Boris Pasternak.
