    I'm looking for a poem that was on here a few years ago, I don't know how to find it. But the name of the poem was " My Love Is Like A Gloomy Day In June" . I can't remember who wrote it. Thank you!

    Burning Bribery

    A never ending chain
    Enlarged its web
    From ground-floor to roof-top
    Of each building
    Everywhere in our society.

    An inerasable stigma
    An incurable infection
    Leading to corruptions
    Here and there, all over
    In our modern era.

    How shame!
    Laws and orders made,
    Promoted lectures, speeches
    And social awareness,
    Still all efforts in vain.

    Douse who will
    This burning bribery?

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking for a poem about the Fall of Adam and Eve. I read it as an undergrad, but I can't remember the title or the name of the author. I know it was written within the last 100 years, and I think it is a modern or postmodern poem - I feel like maybe it might be written in the last 60-30 years. The poem is quite short (either sonnet length or shorter) and it contains the idea that Adam and Eve were being " digested" by the snake (or something to that effect) . I apologize for having no other information.

    Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated! !

    I'm looking for a copy of, if I am remembering the title correctly. It's been more than 40 years since I last read it, a poem called " Ode to a leather Bottle" by that ever prolific writer Anonymous.

      Would this be the one Ode to a Bottle (Requiem for a Toe) - - - - - - - - Bottle tall, filled with drink. Ring you up, I will, I think. Across the scanner your barcode goes, off ... more

    Does anyone know if " The Man in The Arena" , a Theodore Roosevelt quote, will ever become an addition to this site?

    " There's two parts to love
    So why does it come gift wrapped as one gift.
    It's like when you fall in love your heart slips
    Between the arms of a Double sided Rolex
    One arm reading beautiful and romantic stories which you can only read slowly in time.
    And the other cracked and brittle
    Equivalent to a heart which has been stripped away of happiness and deprived of an end.
    How unique love can be?
    Stimulating the thoughts of romantic souls to search for a meaning,
    Unfortunately to find, you never stop loving someone you only find someone else to think about.
    And when your mind goes blank and your heart feels hollow.
    You seek others to complete your mind and seek more love to hopefully fill your heart when smothered in it.
    And as we try to chase love, love continues to chase us.
    Sometimes we catch up and feel it for only a moment
    Until we lose track of reality and fall from gods finger tips! "
    Bo-Edward Lawrence

    I'm looking for an English language poem. It's about a hawk or an eagle or a similar bird. It describes the world and himself from his point of view. He feels himself superior to the world and admires himself. Does anyone have any idea?

      I don't know about feeling superior, but maybe you are thinking about " The Eagle" by Tennyson.

    I have a passage from a poem I read in a book a few years ago, can't remember who it's by or the book name. The part I have is; a common ground
    that lies deep within and beyond us.
    A place - long remembered -
    where we all can meet
    beyond visible and verbal difficulties
    where each may feel safe
    take heart
    and remember the quiet love
    that enfolds us all

      One place this passage is found is The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook by Edmund J. Bourne.
