    Looking for a poem that I read quite a while ago. Content is about the last passenger on a New York City bus suggesting to the driver that since it is such a beautiful night, why not drive the bus to the Florida coast.

      Dear Stijn, What a cool name. Are you studying English in Holland? A good poem in English for a student and anyone else is 'My candle burns at both ends, it will not last the night... ' It is by ... more

    Hi, I'm very eager to find a poem for my father. Unfortunately I do not know the name or author, although my father is certain that the poem is called or is about a murder. He read the poem at school in the late 40's / early 50's and has been trying to find it ever since. I would very much appreciate anyone's help as I'm at a loss!

    The only line he can remember is as follows:

    'T'was night, and not a single star shone in the firmament on high'.

    The only poem I keep finding is called 'The Spacious Firmament on High' by Joseph Addison and that's not the one.

    If anyone can help I'd appreciate it soooo much!

    Thanks, Rachael.

    I have been trying to find a copy of Lousia May Alcotts poem 'Sunlight' that was first published in Peterson's Magazine in September of 1851 (vol 20 no.3) Page number 110 It was authored under the pseudonym 'Flora Fairfield' It was her first published work. It is a poem in five stanzas. The first line: 'It comes from its far away home in the night'. I have been using every source I can find and still no luck locating this poem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I'm looking for a poem I used to have and cannot find again. I do not know the author. But I know some of the words. If this rings a bell or you know it, PLEASE send to my email address: parker726@aol.com. Thank you SO much!

    I have been looking for a poem by Dixie Willson, called 'Honey Bear'. It starts off, 'Once upon a summer in the hills by the river
    Was a deep green forest where the wild things grew.
    There were caves as dark as midnight - there were tangled trees and thickets
    And a thousand little places where the sky looked through.'
    If anyone could help with the full text for the poem, I'd be delighted!
    Fiona

      I like Denise Levertov. She is from the same period. Though more lyrical than someothers of her time, she writes often of isolation as a condition within, despair, etc. Let me know what you think ... more
