    Hi Im looking for a poem called 'Road 1904'. It's about a woman picking up an abandoned baby in the middle of road of a war-torn country. There is aline in the poem that goes 'Heavy as lead Heavy as the Dead' if that helps. I would REALLY appreciate it if someone could find it online for me. I have searched google and yahoo and on this site and cannot find it anywhere...

    Im looking for a poem that would remind you of a football movie. You know like how the team isnt very good but the last game that win by just a little. I need a poem that would remind you of a song that starts playing right before the team wins the game. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am looking for a poem that surprised me years ago. I do not remember who wrote it or the name of it for sure. the name of it is something like 'why should I love you' one verse of it goes 'David stands a head above you, Dick's as brave as Lancelot' The ending was such an unexpected surprise when I originally read the poem I copied it and carried it around for about 3 years. I want to share the poem with my daughter and cannot find it. I had always associated it with Emily Dickenson but I think I am mistaken about that.

    Hi there,

    I heard a lovely poem called The Unloved by Kathleen Raine on Radio 4 last Sunday night. I've searched everywhere I can think of on the web for it without success. Anyone got any ideas or a copy they can email. Thx, Melvyn

      Could your dad actually be quoting from 'Cargoes' by John Masefield, which begins with the phrase you quoted?

    Hello,
    I need help finding a good poem that has a 'disdainful' tone to it, I have been looking and, to put it in a nutshell, I am not very good with poetry. I have to be able to write a two page paper explaining how the poem has a 'disdainful' tone to it, if you could help, I would really appreciate it!

    Thank You So Much,

    Austin Borgstede
