    Hello all.
    I am new here and I am afraid my first request will be a tough one.
    I have searched the internet high and low and have come up empty, so I am turning you for help. I am looking for a poem which I believe is called 'Thirteen Year Old Girl', author unknown to me. I can offer only the synopsis of what I remember and one small snippet which I cannot be sure is an accurate quote - but here goes.
    The poem has a young girl sitting at a window looking out at what I believe is a springtime scene. In the background she hears the Ronettes playing on the radio - the song is 'Be My Baby Now.' I believe she is thinking about boys (big surprise for a 13 year old huh?) . There is one piece of a line that I think I remember almost intact - she sees a bird...

    'jump [into the air? from the branch? I don't remember.] with an odd alcarity, as if it knew just what it was doing'.

    I am so mad at myself for losing this poem. Even madder for not memorizing something that meant so much to me. I would be in your debt if you can help me find it again.

    Peace to you all,
    Hidden Yeti

    I am searching rampantly for this poem I was in love with during a very hard time in my life, and I only remember a few lines from it. Those lines are:

    'Let liars fear, let cowards shrink, let traitors turn around. Whatever we have dared to think that dare we also say.'

    Anyone know which poem that is? Someone please help. Its driving me insane.

    I am trying to find the poem, 'My Birthday'.

    The first stanza:

    Beneath the moonlight and the snow
    Lies dead my latest year;
    The winter winds are wailing low
    Its dirges in my ear.

    I think that the poet was John Greenleaf Whitter.

    Thanks for your help in finding it.

    one of the apothegm poems by Friedrich von Schiller in 1796.
    I need its standard English version.
    The title is 'Fountain (od spring?) of Youth'
    The content might be:
    Trust me, it's not the myth:
    There is really a Youth Fountain flowing everlastingly.
    You question me: where is it?
    -It's contained in the poetic arts.

    This is my version. I need expert version.

    I don't know if this is really a 'looking for a poem' subject, but I am currently writing a research paper on Ted Hughes for my senior year of high school. I have looked everywhere, and I cannot find which collections the five poems I chose came from, the poems being 'Wind, ' 'Hawk Roosting, ' 'Bride and Groom Lie Hidden for Three Days, ' 'Tractor, ' and 'The Harvest Moon.' If anyone could let me know where I can find which collections they came from, or if you can let me know the actual collections it would be much appreciated.

    Hi All, I Have searched everywhere for a poem that was read at my Mothers funeral. Unfortunately no one seems to have a copy of it: -(
    I don't have much info, but hopefully someone out there will be able to help me, as my daughter is getting married and would like it read at her wedding in rememberance of her Grandmother. It had something to do with a train or a caboose and the journey you take before you die. Anxiously awaiting responses
