HI. for my English class, I am assigned to find a poem that was written 100 years ago or later and compare its theme with a theme of a contemporary poem. I was wondering if there are any good poems that utilize extended metaphors.

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I'm after a quote that goes something like 'the test of a poem is not that one wants to marry it immefiately, but that one wants to return to it again....soon'
Trying to find who said it and the exact quote?

I’m looking for a poem I read in a poetry class. I’m pretty sure it was about the passing of the authors female friend, to whom she wrote a lot poems but it may have been about the passing of her child, about which she also wrote.
The poem ends, or has a line very near the end about what’s written on the graves headstone, which is or is similar to “here lies Orindas(?) heart”. I want to say its by Katherine Phillips but I’ve read the poems by her that I could find online and haven't found the one with this line.
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?The search for this poem is driving me crazy.

My Mother could recite the following poem from beginning to end but unfortunately she now has alzheimer's and we have forgotten most of it. We have tried to fill in the gaps without any luck. If anybody knows the full poem I would very much appreciate it if you could fill in the missing part.
Two spiders on a window cill set off one day to roam
They hope to find a cumfy place to call their very own
The window they were sitting on was open just a chink
said one my dear lets go in here the very thought i think
They climbed up to the ceiling high to find a cosy place
They hoped to build a cumfy house of spiders web and lace
And thats where they are living now in cosy little rooms
miles and miles and miles away from fluffy feather broom
Thanks in advance

Hi- I am looking for a poem I read long ago, which I'd like to share with my students. It's about a very poor mother and father who have 7 or 8 children who they are having a hard time supporting. They receive an offer from a wealthy relative to adopt one of the children in return for money. They consider the offer, and one night, when the children are sleeping, they go from child to child trying to decide which one they should give up. They realize they are unable to give any of them up, even the baby who has not been named yet, and they write to the relative, telling them thanks, but they have decided to keep all of their children. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

In 1973-74 I was required to recite a poem for Speech class. The local library had numerous poetry books and I found one that I thought would make a statement. I can't remember the title or the author. However I do remember the last stanza -more or less. It is as follows- -" -What shall we do, we in whose name the bowl of the sky was filled with death. Death the color of goldfish. Death that blossomed into a mighty flower of evil. For guilt of the melted eyeballs of Hiroshima. " If anyone can help me find this poem I would be extremely grateful. Thank you

I'm trying to find a poem I read once with the words " the gloaming" in the first few lines and which ends with the (approximate) last line " ...against the gods until I die" . I believe it may have been one of the English romantic poets.

Hi! I'm looking for a poem I heard a while back. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and just recently remembered I liked it very much
Better known was his passion for the theatre
And the tragic thing that could happen was for one,
To think his honor a fool

I am searching for a poem I read in Jr. High School. It had to do with a statue and a bird who refused to abandon the statue when winter came and the rest of the flock flew south. Appreciate any help in locating this poem.

Hello I am trying to find a poem that I heard many many years ago, It didn't mean anything to me then but now I am a wife and a mother this poem is playing on my mind all the time and I must find it. Basically the husband leaves for work in the morning, he asks his wife to pay a bill or post a letter I cannot remember, as she reaches for the letter she notices the plant needs watering, then as she is filling up the watering can she may as well wash the dishes, it goes on like this and then husband comes home and she hasn't posted the letter, the one thing he asked her to do. I was wondering if anybody knows of this poem please?x
