    There is a poem that my husband's 91 year old grandmother always quotes a portion of to me. She was in the hosptital in the late 40's after giving birth to my mother-in-law. She was a breech baby and the doctor quoted a poem about lazy babys coming into the world sitting down. She can only remember this one line but I would love to give her the entire poem. Can anyone help?

    Poems thine eternal verses,
    To serve and save the mind;
    Bringing new twilight to find.
    I pray for the soul's peace to acquire, to aspire in 'tis universe.
    The blessing thro' which I sing,
    To guide others, to ride towards eternal carnival.
    God Bless you, all Poets, Savants, all soul to coalesce.

    I am looking for a poem written by Charles Chaplin (the actor) . I don't know the name of the poem. It is about friendship and what we look on a friend. If anyone knows it, could you please send it to me or tell me the name of it.
    Thank you so much!

    I'm looking for a poem I read in the New Yorker, in early 2002. I can't remember much about it, other than that I loved it. I think the author's name was something like Anthony Walton? Help!

    I read a poem in college that I can't seem to remember correctly. I know it's American, probably from the turn of the century, and that it was pretty angst-y about the American condition. The only lines I can vaguely remember (probably incorrectly) are:

    ...gray skies stretch (arch?) over us
    and we are all alone.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    hey I was just wondering has anyone heard of a poem like this.

    I will describe it.

    Here goes.

    It talks about a child thinking their parents or (father) is perfect when they are young, then through adolescence thinking the total opposite, then as an adult respecting them (or him)

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaase help me, has anyone heard of something like this?

    I have once read a beautiful poem by Pablo Neruda. I can't remember it now except for one line ' I want to do with you what the spring does to cherry blossoms.'. If someboy out there knows please let me know.
