    What do you all think of organising a day for booze? Let say Friday and we write about our favourite drinks and crazy stories relating to booze and call it
    'Friday night is pie-eyed night.'Francesca Johnson gave me the idea and the name.

    Dear poets,
    My name is Olga. I was so happy to discover this site, as I have been looking for talented poets for a few months! I was impressed by beautiful, talented works here. It’s made me to ask for your help.
    I am a musician and I have a few songs that I need to write some lyrics. Unfortunately English is not my native language, and I am not a poet, so I can’t do it myself.
    Great request!
    If you specialized in writing lyrics for songs and English is your native language, please contact me: volha_zui@yahoo.com, Tell: +971503507017. I live in Dubai, but I will be happy to hear from anyone from any part of the world

    Does anyone know where I can get hold of some Ernst Josephson Poems, either online or a book. If anyone has any information on where I might be able to find his poems please email me.

    Thanks

    Ben.

    Ive been desperatley looking for a poem that my mum told me her mum used to read to her as a child. As her mum passed away recently i thought it would be nice to find the poem for her but i just cant find it anywhere. All i know is that the poem is about a little boy who dreamed that he was posted in the mail! if anyone has any ideas i would be really grateful. Thanks.

    I've been carrying around the words to this poem since high school, and would really love to know what it refers to, and who the author is. Can anyone help?

    'I go to seek that ancient isle, where fame and fortune dwell. I leave a love, a laugh, a smile, and so my dear, farewell.'

    Can anyone tell me what these (approximate?) lines are from, as remembered by my friend Jane from school,45 years ago. As I can't find it in any searches I wonder whether she may have dreamt it or even written it herself, as it doesn't sound very good to me:

    Along the windswept platform, pinched and white,
    The travellers stand in pools of wintry light,
    Offering themselves to dawn's long slanting shadows/arrows.
    The train's due, porter's trundle heavy barrows
    .....
    The train steams in billowing forth resplendent clouds of...vapour
    Hither and about......

    Very many thanks,

    David
