    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!

    I can't believe there isn't someone out there willing to help a soon to be ex-employee who wants to leave with a unique (for my workplace) send off by reciting a humorous poem.

    Surely someone must be able to help?

    Hi, I am currently working on a poetry analysis project. In order to complete it, I have to find a poem. I am looking for a poem that has a good metaphor, like 'Mother to Son, ' by Langston Hughes. Please help me find a good poem. Thank you for you time.

      The Mirror by Silvia Plath has some great metaphors in it, open to many interpritations.

    I am looking for a poem I studied at school. Can't remember the title or the author, though. All I recall is that it was about sailors eventually making landfallon an island. they dragged their boat up on the sand. That's all I know! I remember the atmosphere of the poem, an exotic mystery, but nothing else. can anyone help me?

    I've somehow, just managed to discover this site, don't know why I hadn't before. Anyway, it's fabulous. Not looking for a specific poem, but I am looking for suggestions as to a poem of short to mdeium length that I could use to say goodbye to my current place of work.

    If it has humour and a poignancy then all the better. Suggestions? Offers to write one? I have four weeks to achieve this :)
