Looking For A Poem
(5/25/2006 3:27:00 PM)
Just downloaded a very full collection of poems by ASJ Tessimond, , , very generously offered on this site! ..But the two poems I really relished some decades ago do not appear...where can I download the?
They are 'Portrait of a Romaantic' 1st line...He is in love with the land over the next hill and the next, the room beyond the looking glass, with the bird that is never caught...' AND (I think) 'Thoughts from middle Age'.... and do you prefer this level country.....would you give all this up for rounded thighs and eyes you drowned in? .... (as best I recall from a 1950's Putnam anthology) Grateful for any pointers.

I am looking for an amazingly inspirational poem I once read. It was about an woman in her 80s, maybe on her deathbed, looking back on her life with no regrets. I think it talked about some of the things she had done. The essence of it was it was better to have done something and made a mistake than to always have wondered what might have been.
Can anyone help me? I would really appreciate it!

In high school 1986-1990, I read a poem by a female poet which focused on sacrifices she had made her whole life because upon death she knew she would go to Heaven/afterlife. Upon dying she realizes there is nothing after death and regrets the sacrifices she gave in life. The final line is 'Darkness(or balckness) - Darkness (or blackness) nothing else. O I will never forgive this' I can remember nothing else about the poem but Ihave not been able to track it down all these years. Any input would be very helpful.

I need some help with a poem by sarah teasdale, 'I shall not care'. Where ever I search, I find only the first two pieces. But I've got a croatian translation which is much longer.............. ending like ' this shall remind you that I'm no more, but that I've been.'
Maybe somebody can help me.
Thank you, ilanga

I'm looking for a poem that I first saw in the pages of a psychology text book.
Poem was about a man (possibly named Jim? ?) who was tall, handsome, smart and admired by all.
Although seemingly a content and successful, the man is living in despair as the last line of the poem reads something like ' and he put a bullet in his head'
The reader is left with the impression that even the most seemingly happy and succesful person can be troubled.

I was wondering if anyone has heard of a poem or quotation that includes 'I hate to fall but fall for love'? ? ? ? The poet or artist might be young, male and has the initials BW.
