    In high school we had to memorize a poem entitled 'My Advocate'. I can only remember that it was about Jesus standing in front of God and defending us, but I don't remember any actual lines or the author. If anybody out there knows of it, please let me know! ! !

      My Advocate I sinned. And straightway, post-haste Satan flew Before the presence of the Most High God, And made a railing accusation there. He said, “This soul, this thing of clay and sod Has ... more

    Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me find a children's poem that my sister and I have been looking for for years! It was a poem my father used to read to us when we were small. I had thought for many years that Spike Milligan had written it, but as I have been unable to find it amongst his work I am guessing I must be wrong! It begins...'One day in a perranporth pet shop, on a glorious morning in June, A lady from Parr bought a budgerigar and it sang to a glorious tune' I'm afriad that's all I can recall but would love to trace the full poem as a gift for my sister. Any ideas anyone? ! Many thanks, Polly D

    Does anyone know of a poem I think is called 'Feed Ma Lamz'. I studied it at school and would love to get hold of a copy. I think it may be by a Glaswegian Poet called Tom Leonard but I can't really remember. I can't get in touch with the school as it was about 20 years ago.
    Thanks for your help.

    Does anyone know this poem's title? 'When despair for the world grows in me I go and lie down where the wood rake rests in his beauty on the water and the great herron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with the fore thought of grief. I come into the presence of still water and feel above me the day blind stars waiting with their light and for a time I rest in the peace of the world and I'm free.' I was told that this poem was by William Blake but have read every one I can find and have not found this one. Please Help!

    Hello all of you guys...

    I´ve got one simple but at the sama time a pretty hard question. I am wondering if anyone of you know or know where I could possibly find an answer to the following question: How many languages has the poem 'To the virgins to make much of time' by Robert Herrick been translated into?

    Thank you!
