    I'm looking for a poem I heard many years ago. It's called 'The Bull', or 'The Old Bull', or something similar. It's about an ageing herd bull looking back over his long life. Lines like 'The bulls he fought, the calved he fathered' come to mind, as well as 'He turned to face the scavengers in the sky', something like that. Can anyone help?

    I read a poem a while back and now I cant find it anywhere.

    It started with 'I use to believe in Fairy tales.....'

    And it went on with how they use to believe in happily ever after etc. It was a beautiful poem and really well written but I cannot find it anywhere!

    Does anyone think they have every read anything similar to this?

    Thank you! ! !

    Hi, I am searching for a poem that I read over 60 years ago. The title was GLORY and the first verse went, .. And is this glory quoth the swain who'd listened to a soldiers tale. To fall upon the battle plain or maimed for life be should one fail. To scape of bullet, sword or gun, tis monstrous surely to misname, that wholesale murder I have done, both with carnage, field and fame..
    This was a published poem but all my searches for it have failed. Is there anyone out there who can help please. Thanks. L Thorpe.

    Does anyone on the board recognize this poem? I am trying to find out who the author was. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

    I've walked the shore a thousand times,
    this time I walk alone.
    Two sets of footsteps in the sand,
    but this time only one.

    What happened to my skies of blue?
    Why has it turned to gray?
    Why has the ocean lost its hue?
    What made it fade away?

    Miles and miles of endless sea,
    but yet it reaches shore
    O'er sand and rocks and reef
    that smooths its oft fierce roar

    I guess that life is like an ocean,
    in many different ways.
    Tides that rise and tides that fall
    nothing stays the same.

    But there's one thing, and I'm real certain,
    the sun will rise again
    and with it a brand new day,
    more blue skies ahead my friend!

    And the ocean shades of blue
    will once again return,
    and bitter seas of life will cease
    never more to churn

    My tracks of one left in the sand
    will be covered up in time
    and all that will for e'er remain,
    is a memory left behind

    Hello all,
    I am a new member, looking for a poem from my long pass youth.I was a nine year old, at school in rural Jamaica when introduced to this poem.The said year I was sent to England to join parents. I can't recall the name of the poet or the name of the poem. However, it was a discriprion of Cloumbus's first sighting of Jamaica, or someone on board his ship. Bear with me as I may have some of the spellings wrong........ 'In front a mighty ciba hault to sentinel the land. Far off, dim, distant muted tide wash round a silent strand. Like clouds in dream the white foams grows, fainting on the far off reefs. Sound founders in this space or air......with oacean's grief. And, all is silent save the wind fine sound harp of trees, and some way-faring village shout a vagrant on the breeze. By grass field gold intintured green the daker gongoo spreads................. the western sun shivering lance has struck through quivering leaves.......the forest rank emarshall sweep over yonder mountain head.....

    All I can remember, help me recall my youth.
