    Hi, I'm new here and don't know if I am posting in the write place. I am researching poetry from my childhood including Shel Silverstein because he was a favorite of mine when I was a child. One poem in particular caught my eye, 'One Inch Tall', page 55 of 'Where the Sidewalk Ends'. I'm trying to describe the form but can't seem to determine it based on traditional definitions. (i.e., lymrick, haiku, etc.) . Could someone please tell me what form of poem that 'One Inch Tall' is in. Thank you so much.

      To be more specific: Likely you're looking for 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Good luck with the albatross. anw

    Hello, There are actually three poems I am looking for. Two of them I haven't read in over a year and the other I lost.

    One is about a Drunk Driver who hit someone and the sober person is the one on the ground with the voices fading and it feels like sharp knives going through him

    Two, Is about alittle girl who calls the operator for the number to heaven

    Three, Is about alittle girl going to school, and is supose to bring their dad but she couldn't. And everyone thought he was a dead beat but when she got up she said that her dad died in the Twin tower and that he leaves her a single rose.

    I really hope someone can help me, I have been trying to find these poems for ages.

    Help...I need to find a poem and the sad thing is I am unsure of the title as well as most of the text. It may be called Time or What is Time? Some of the text reads:
    I asked an aged man with hoary hairs, wrinkled and curled with worldly cares; What is time?

    Time is the warp of Life. Go tell the young, the gay to reap it well.

    I am desperately trying to recall a poem by Sandburg (I think) about the temporal aspect of life; it was in a high school lit book and discussed ancient times and how nothing last forever. I wish I could recall even a phrase from it but I can't. Does anyone know the poem I am trying to find? Thanks so much!
