    I am trying to remember who wrote the classic poem which I believe was denouncing nazis.
    The narrator writes how his neighbors are one by one taken away because they are a Jew, or for other reasons,
    and the narrator's rationale for doing nothing to stop them is he is a Jew, etc.. and in the end they come for the narrator
    and there is nobody to help the narrator.

    Hi, my name's Janni and I'm a new member. I'm searching for a poem called The Dead. I don't know who it was written by, just that it's one of Stuart Maconie's (Radio 2 DJ) favourite poems. I've tried everything to get it but no luck as yet. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Much thanks, Janni.

    -Publishing Date

      In translation it does not rhyme, but in Spanish the rhyme scheme appears to be, abba, abba, aab, aa.

    Hi there.
    I need help trying to find, what i think is a poem. I heard it once about 20 years ago and loved it but it has almost all gone from my memory.
    The poem I believe starts when the writer wakes and a glass falls to the ground. The next lines all lead into each other. I think it goes something like.
    The writer wakes and knocks over a glass that falls to the floor and then the writer follows and it leads into each previous event
    I know I am not being very clear but could someone help.

    Please

    Here is the poem I'm wondering about. I think my mum wrote it but I'm not sure.
    The first verse goes;
    I wonder if the chipmunks know
    When everything is filled with snow
    And night starts falling very fast
    That Christmas time is here at last?.

    There are two more verses which I will send if necessary. Is this poem familiar to anyne?

      That poem has been anthologized, in Christmas Stories by Merrigold Press and in A Little Christmas Treasury: Three Story Poems for the Holiday Season by Western Publishing Co.

    Hello!

    I'm looking for a poem that's about words. The general concept and I think part of the form, went like this:

    The XXXXX have 43 words for love
    The YYYYY have 6 words for mutually beneficial
    The ZZZZ have 14 words for friendship

    I think the general concept was regarding love, but I'm not sure.

    I recalled these two poems while looking for the one above, so these are NOT it:
    The Forgotten Dialect of the Heart by Jack Gilbert
    Words For It – A Poem By Julia Cameron

    Thank you so much!

    Looking for a Thanksgiving children's poem that many elementary students in the 1950s and 1960s were required to memorize in school. The lines I remember are " Tom Turkey was worried, late news made him quake. Thanksgiving he heard, meant his life was at stake." The poem goes on to tell how he decided to go on a diet to save his life. If anyone is familiar with this poem, please post or contact me. Thank you.
