    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.

    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.'

    There is a poem I once heard and found. Since then I have forgotton the poet's name aswell as the poem itself. I do, however remember that it says something like 'oonga boonga voodoo you' or something similar to that. It's set in africa and is about a man who stumbles across a tribe. I think the poet was female if that helps any. If anyone could help me find this poem I would be grateful.

    I have been looking for a poem for a good few years now and dont know the title or the author but wordered if anyone could help me. All I know is that it must be old as my grandma used to say it to me. The dits I remember are: - There off there off the race has begun
    there silken colours they flash in the sun

    'It isnt a fortune but Oh its so sweet
    And you cant come to grief when the favorates meet.'

    Hope someone can help me Many Thanks

    Does anyone know the name of the Bukowski poem, the one where he lists all the reasons one should not be a writer? It's kind of humorous. I couldn't find it here though, and I don't know the title, or if it has one.

    I am searching for a poem to print on a remeberance card for my grandmothers funeral. I would like something that reminds everyone of her and conveys that she is still here in all of us. She was the head of a large family about 60 people. She always wanted family to stick together and help each other. She was quite opiniated and spoke her mind. She was a leader in the community, the administrator of a nursing home for 30 years and the first female city commisioner in the city I live in. If anyone has a suggestion PLEASE PLEASE email me at the address below. I was just asked to do this for her funeral and only have 2 more days to find one.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Mike Cox
