    i read a poem when i was 8 years old, and i remember crying in the classroom. i typed in some words into google, and i have found a line from it, but that is all. the poet or title would be of great help, thanks.
    'O sharp and golden thorn, if only i might feel you pierce my heart once more! '
    i think this is from it anyway, it was about a robin and a rose.

    I am looking for a poem that starts out 'Come little leave said the wind one day, Come with me and we will play'. I remember it from school years ago and cannot remember who wrote it or the rest of the words. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanx

    I'm looking for a poem published in the New Yorker, I think in early 2002. Here's a quote: 'As if true love and its fraternal twin, the blues, possessed equally the powers of devotion and redemption.' Thanks!

      Try 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost. It seems to fit your description.

    Hey I'm looking for a poem that was a favorite of mine in high school, its called Ballad of Hell and Mrs. Roebeck. I believe its by Hilaire Belloc, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

      It's in Hilaire Belloc, 'Complete Verses' (Pimlico, London,1991) , p.129.

    Hello,
    A few years ago on the BBC 'Poetry Please' radio programme, Prunella Scales read Alfred Noyes's 'The Highwayman'. I have purchased all the 'Poetry Please' cassette tapes, but none of them has this particular version. Does anyone have a recording I could copy- I am desperate for this poem!

    I am looking for a poem that I think is called suicide note but I am not sure who the author is. The only poems I can find with this name are not the right ones. This poem is written from an asian girls point of view, she is in college and has done bad in a class. She is standing outside of the window of her dorm and jumps. This is actually a poem based on something that happened. Does anyone know where I can find this poem or at least the author?

    Please can anyone help me find a poem I have been searching for for so long? It is about a child shopping in 'God's Store'. I thought it was entitled 'God's Shopping Basket' but I have been unable to locate a poem with this title ANYWHERE. The poem rhymes and lists all the attributes we would wish to possess as a Christian person - ending with the question how much do I owe? But the answer is that the 'bill was paid long, long ago.'
