    I'm remembering the peom from a book I had as a child. I'm not sure if I'm remembering it word-for-word, but I would like to find out who the author is.

    Beware my child the snaggle-toothed beast
    He sleeps till noon then makes his feast
    Of Hershey bars and cakes of yeast
    And anyone around-o!

    So if you see him sneeze three times.
    Say three loud and senseless rhymes.
    Give him all your saved up dimes
    Or else you'll never be found-o!

    Hello

    The poem I am looking for is about a ship that is ship wrecked at sea, and it talks about from the wood of the old ship a new ship is built that is bigger and better than before.

    I'm looking for a poem I read once. It was written by someone named Rosenberg in the 1960's and I believe it is titled 'the wasps nest'.

    I can't seem to find a copy of it anywhere or where it originally appeared.

    Hi, I am looking for a poem that my Uncle learnt when he was at school in Victoria around the 1930's/40's. The poem starts off
    'On the 25th of April far across the sea, our brave Australian soldiers stormed Gallipoli'.
    In the middle of the poem there is a line that says: 'and with fixed bayonetts, set the Turks to flight'.
    The poem ends with:
    'And down the long long ages, glory will ever shine, on the men who fought in battle fighting for me and mine.'

    This is all I can remember of the poem, if anybody knows the poem or know where I may be able to find it, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks

    Hi there, I wonder if you can help me. I have a wedding in two weeks and I have been asked to do a reading. The brief is non religious and not too cheesy. Do you have an idea for either relevant romantic poems or even funnier poems that could fit the bill? Your advice would be much appreciated as I am rather useless when it comes to these things!

    My question is about Eugene O'neill's poem 'Even as a child'.It's a poem of deep thoughts, and it sounds like a monologue of the great playwright.I like it very much, and I want to quote it in my research.But it appears only on this website.In 'Eugene O'neill's poems: 1912-1944' collected by Donald Gallup I can't find it.So, can the member who submitted this poem tell me from where or what materials you found this masterpiece?
    Thanks!
