    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

    I am looking for a poem that I first came across whilst in the Senior school many years ago. I have had no success to date locating it and was hoping that someone knows of it. I cannot remember the title, although I'm sure it has 'sailor' in there somewhere. I only remember some of the first verse. The words I don't know or am unsure of are in brackets.

    Here stands a sea-legged sailor
    Come to this loitering Inn
    Just when the (? ? ? ?) shades of (? ? ? ?) are fading
    The (? ? ? ?) shades of (evening) begin.

    Well that's all I remember. I hope someone can help me.
