    I am looking for a poem about an Indian brave who takes an aged Indian squaw out into the woods one cold snowy night to let her die by exposure. It appeared in CAVALCADE OF POEMS published by Scholastic Magazine around 1960.

    I am not able to recall the title or the wording of any lines.

    I am unable to remember the rest of this verse. Can anyone help me out.

    There's a spot that's bathed in beauty,
    on the edge of Fossell Run,
    where the brumby's come to water
    when the summers day is done.
    Men come to steal their freedom,
    if the drought should have them weak.
    They muster along the rangers
    and the flats beside the creek
    Alas my proud wild beauty you go
    by trap and gun.
    But I'll miss you from the waters
    when the summers day is done.

    Years ago in High School forensics one of the girls competing read a poem and I am now trying to find it for my daughter. I have NO IDEA what the title was and/or a lot of it. The basis of the poem was about a little girl who lived on another planet and this planet only had the sun come out once every? ? not sure how many years 10 - 20? ? and she had never seen it. She was probably around 7 or 8 and all she could talk about was how excited she was to see the sun; which was about to come out soon. Her other classmates were tired of her talking about it and pushed her into a closet, teasing her that they would keep her locked up and she wouldn't get to see the sun. Then the sun did come out and everyone ran outside to see it and they all forgot about the little girl in the closet as they all played and enjoyed the feel of the sun, etc.
    ANYONE have any idea what poem it is and / or title, writer, etc. I'd love to hear from you! :)

      Lavonne, I'm not familiar with a poem with this plot, but the short story 'All Summer in a Day' by Ray Bradbury fits your description exactly. The children live in a colony on Venus, where it rains a ... more

      Think this was a short story by either Asimov or Clarke - used ot have it in my collection, but the book fell apart. Story is only about 4 pages long, and extremely emotive. Hope this helps

    I am looking for a poem titled 'The Red on the White.' It is about the clubbing of baby harp seals in Canada. It incorporates some lines and word patterns from William Blake's 'The Lamb' to draw a parallel to the innocence of the baby seals and the sacrificial element of their killing. The title refers to the blood on the ice. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the poet. I came across the poem about 20-30 years ago. I have pretty well exhausted the Internet looking for it.

    I wonder if anyone can tell me where these lines come from. There may be one or two errors as I try to recall...... It has been in the family a lomng time, and I wonder who wrote it:

    This period of life is brief,
    it is the red of the red rose leaf....

    I'm looking for a poem I memorized in high school. I can only remember bits and pieces of it. High school graduation was nearly 30 years ago.

    'I was a roman, he was but a Jew, yet there he hung between heaven and earth.'

    'Stop my ears oh, Father for I can hear his blood drip to the ground.'

    'One cried the veil is rent in the temple.'

    'Truly this was the Son of God.'

    My memory tells me the poem was titled 'The Roman Soilder'.

    Hello Im new to this board and I would appreciate your help

    I am looking forward to complete a poem that impressed me a lot when I first read it.It could have been like 10-15 years ago, in Interview Magazine, and it started like this

    Sometimes I look up to the sky
    And wonder why we have to die
    They say there is a heaven there
    But this belief I do not share

    It continued for 8 or 12 more verses I guess.
    I would like to know the rest of the poem, who wrote it and if he/she has written something else.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Hello! Ok, I'm trying to find this poem, but I don't remember the title or author. I know it has to do with advice being given, apparently from a father to a son. The advice is about becoming a man, and the poem is several verses long. Generally it talks about standing against any opposition for the sake of truth, I think. For some reason I seem to remember that the last line is 'only then will you become a man my son.' Or it's something like 'only then can you be called a man...' I'm not sure. Please help! I also seem to remember it was by a well known poet. Any ideas?

    Hi there,
    I am looking for a poem. It is about the passing of a husband, and how he pre-arranges to send his wife flowers, or a puppy or something after his death? ? ? Does anyone know of this poem. It has been passed around in e-mail a couple of times.

    I am also looking for the name of a famous cowboy poem? ? ? I'll know it when I see it.
    Any help would be appreciated.
