    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!

    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 could. 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.

    I have been looking for a poem by Dixie Willson, called 'Honey Bear'. It starts off, 'Once upon a summer in the hills by the river
    Was a deep green forest where the wild things grew.
    There were caves as dark as midnight - there were tangled trees and thickets
    And a thousand little places where the sky looked through.'
    If anyone could help with the full text for the poem, I'd be delighted!

    Just downloaded a very full collection of poems by ASJ Tessimond, , , very generously offered on this site! ..But the two poems I really relished some decades ago do not appear...where can I download the?
    They are 'Portrait of a Romaantic' 1st line...He is in love with the land over the next hill and the next, the room beyond the looking glass, with the bird that is never caught...' AND (I think) 'Thoughts from middle Age'.... and do you prefer this level country.....would you give all this up for rounded thighs and eyes you drowned in? .... (as best I recall from a 1950's Putnam anthology) Grateful for any pointers.

    I am looking for an amazingly inspirational poem I once read. It was about an woman in her 80s, maybe on her deathbed, looking back on her life with no regrets. I think it talked about some of the things she had done. The essence of it was it was better to have done something and made a mistake than to always have wondered what might have been.

    Can anyone help me? I would really appreciate it!

    In high school 1986-1990, I read a poem by a female poet which focused on sacrifices she had made her whole life because upon death she knew she would go to Heaven/afterlife. Upon dying she realizes there is nothing after death and regrets the sacrifices she gave in life. The final line is 'Darkness(or balckness) - Darkness (or blackness) nothing else. O I will never forgive this' I can remember nothing else about the poem but Ihave not been able to track it down all these years. Any input would be very helpful.
