    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

    Hello everyone.

    In planning my grandmother's funeral, my family have been trying, without success, to find a poem that she loved. WE can't remember anything about it except for it's title - 'The Day' - and that it was written around the time of WW1.

    If anyone knows the poem I mean, or has an idea where I might find it, please email me at: captainslackbladder@hotmail.com - and win my eternal gratitude.

    I am looking for the original version and date of first publication of a poem titled 'Interview with God'.

    Many different versions are available online but what I am after is the original one.

    Thank you,

    I'm looking for an old poem my Great Grandma used to recite. The poem starts:

    'I went to bed by candlelight'.

    Any clues on the title or auther? Thanks.
