    I was touched by an anonymous poem which Callum Best - George Best's son read out during his father's funeral. I would be so grateful if anyone could send me either the words or at least where to find same.

    Thanks in advance

    I am looking for 2 poems. One, I think is by Eliz. Barrett Browning.It refers to a sense of loss or confusion at the loss of one's parents. The 2nd poem I heard in a movie, The Snow Walker. It uses the metaphor of flight. The last line is 'reach out and touch the face of God'. I think the author is McGee, but I have been unable to findd it on this site.

    I am looking for a poem - it seems like it was written in the early romantic era by someone like Southey - about a young man who is trying to talk himself into getting out of bed on a freeeeezing cold winter's morning. Can anyone help?

    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.
