    I have been looking for a poem by e.e. cummings (I'm pretty sure) that says,
    i told him
    you told him
    .....
    .....
    (and the end of the poem is something like)
    it took a brick from the..th floor
    to fall on his head
    to tell him

    I can't find it in any cummings anthology or on this site.

    I GRADUATED FROM CENTER FOR HEALING IN 2001, AND ON MY GRADUATION DAY SOMEONE READ A POEM TO ME. THE NAME OF THAT POEM WAS, GUARDIAN ANGEL. CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME ON FINDING THIS CERTAIN POEM? IN THIS POEM, THE GUARDIAN ANGEL WAS NOT DOING SO WELL, IT SAIS SOMETHING ABOUT HOW HIS WINGS ARE ALL BATTERED AND TORN. THE ANGEL IS EXPLAINING TO THIS PERSON THAT HE WATCHES OVER, THAT HE CANNOT BARE TO MUCH MORE OF THE ABUSE THAT HE PUTS UP WITH WHILE WATCHING OVER THIS CERTAIN PERSON. THE PERSON FEELS AWFUL ABOUT ALL THE PAIN AND TORTURE THAT THE ANGELS BEEN PUTTING UP WITH. I REALLY NEED TO FIND THIS POEM.

    I am looking for a poem I believe is called'Augustus'...Augustus was a chubby lad, fat ruddy cheeks he had. Every one saw with joy the fat plump heathly boy. This is from my childhood and would love to know the Poem and poet. Thought it may have been Edward Lear? Please Help.

      The poem is 'The Story of Augustus Who Would Not Have Any Soup' by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I am looking for a poem entitled A Monkey, s Viewpoint. This was printed in an American magazine when I was a child, some years ago.

    Three monkey, s sat in a coconut tree, discussing things as they, re said to be,
    Said on to the others, now listen you two there, s a certain rumour that can, t be true,
    That man descended from our noble race, the very idea, s a dire disgrace.

      Just do a Google search on 'That man descended from our noble race' and you will find multiple printings of this poem on the web, though no one attributes it to any author.

    I am looking for a poem from my childhood. I can remember most of it.

    When you were just a baby and I'd bounce you on my knee,
    I'd giggle and I'd ask you what you want to be.
    You said 'I am a cowboy! ' though you could barely talk,
    It's true you rode the horses before you learned to walk.

    I think the name of the poem is 'Still my Little Boy'.

    I cut it out of a horse magazine or paper when I was quite young in the mid to late 1970's and have always remembered it. Any help in finding it would be appreciated.

    Hey, there

    I am looking for a poem, which I heard in 'Four weddings and a funeral'.
    This poem was read by a guy at the funeral of his lover and started something like this: 'Stop all the clocks. Cut off the telephone...'
    If anyone can get me this poem, I'll really appreciate it.

    The OLD poem I'm looking for is about someone who draws a circle around himself to shut everyone out but then they draw a bigger circle around his circle to take him in. The lines include 'he drew a circle to keep us out, but love and I had the wit to win, we drew a circle that took him in.' Or something like that. Any help appreciated, thanks in advance!

    This line comes from a poem, song, or play. My mom used to say it to me every Christmas Eve. I would love to find the entire work! Here goes: It's Christmas Eve Miltilda Sue so you must sit right here. Tomorrow you will be all new, you will my dolly dear. I have written a note to Santa....
    I don't remember any more, but please let me know if anyone has heard of these lines before. Thanks
