    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?

    In high school we had to memorize a poem entitled 'My Advocate'. I can only remember that it was about Jesus standing in front of God and defending us, but I don't remember any actual lines or the author. If anybody out there knows of it, please let me know! ! !

    Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me find a children's poem that my sister and I have been looking for for years! It was a poem my father used to read to us when we were small. I had thought for many years that Spike Milligan had written it, but as I have been unable to find it amongst his work I am guessing I must be wrong! It begins...'One day in a perranporth pet shop, on a glorious morning in June, A lady from Parr bought a budgerigar and it sang to a glorious tune' I'm afriad that's all I can recall but would love to trace the full poem as a gift for my sister. Any ideas anyone? ! Many thanks, Polly D
