    Can anyone help me to find the Poem written by Will H Ogilvie which contains this verse.
    When you lay me down to slumber no spot you can choose
    But will ring to the rhythm of galloping shoes
    And under the daisies no grave be so deep
    But the hooves of the horses shall sound in my sleep
    Thanks for anybody's help

      I'd better not copy the whole poem since it's still in copyright, Ogilvie having died in 1963, but you can find it at http: //www.wylieww.com/hooves/hoovesofthehorses.htm

    Hi I'm looking for a poem by Ranier Maria Rilke. It starts with the line 'In deep nights I dig for you like treasure', and I believe it is part of the 'Book of Hours' but there are 122 poems by this poet here on poemhunter and i was just wondering if anyone knew Rilke's work well enough to narrow my search. Thank you very much!

    This one is quite a tough one...
    the last part of the last line is 'passion's sweet fire'... it's about an angel falling in love with a human and it's upsetting the balance between heaven and hell... i've only remembered that part of the poem... just looking to see if anyone else can help me find it. thanks!

      You almost have the whole poem already. In full it goes 'Lad of Athens, faithful be / To Thyself, / And Mystery— / All the rest is Perjury.'

    The author is Carl Sandberg, but this doesn't seem to be available through the sites I know. Bits of it: You were made for joy child... the feet of you were carved for that... the ankles of you were carved for that...
    Anybody know it?

      Me too! Did you find it? I think the first line is: 'One early morning pink and grey as early mornings are in May' or something. If you hear anything about it I'd be very grateful if you could let me ... more

    There was a radio program here in montreal that had a canadian poet reading from a book, songs of the purple fungus I think was the title, but I did not catch the poets name and I havent been able to find anything on the internet. The poems were about robots and strange things like that. Are there any other places I can look?

    Hi
    I'm looking for a poem that I studied in French. I thought it was by Victor Hugo about his child/grandchild but haven't been able to find it. I think it starts 'j'ai du fruit d'or, j'ai du rose' I don't have a clue what its called though!
    Thanks
