    I just saw " The Intouchables" and am looking for the poem referenced by Guillaume Apollinaire. They used a line from it " I yearn as I await letters from you...." . My Grandfather used to read this to me and I cannot find the title, I just can't remember it. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks! Susie

    I am looking for a poem. Written from the woman's perspective. It is about the time passing during her marriage. It sort of runs like this. " I picked up the dry cleaning while you did this." I dropped the kids at school while you built the treehouse " and the situations change as they age. While all of these ordinary things become like breathing and they lose what brought them together. Have searched everywhere. Would love some help finding this one! Thanks :)

      Your poem about the guy eaten by rats is Robert Southey's " Bishop Hatto: A Legend of the Mouse-Tower on the Rhine."

    Looking for a poem first read in Jr. hi. school in early 60's. It was about a woman reflecting back on three boys in her young life and how they kissed her; one boy kissed her soft and tender, one boy kissed her more forceful and aggressively, but the last boy never kissed her at all and that is the kiss she has always wondered about.

      Sounds like the lyrics to the song " Joey" written by Herb Wiener: Jimmy kissed me in the springtime Tommy kissed me in the fall But I remember only Joey Joey kissed me not at all ... more

    I am a forensics coach desperate to find the source material of 2 poems my competitors are using. They both compete at the state tournament in a month, and I am supposed to have proof of publishing in case the material is called into question.

    The first is called " Sins of the Father." It is a poem about a woman named Joanna who was sexually abused by her father when she was young. When she finds out he is dying, she confronts him at his bedside and finds out that he was abused by his uncles when he was a child. We found this in our forensics materials already re-typed, so we have no idea of the author or the original publication.

    The second is a slightly easier question. The poem is " The Subject Being Roses" by Linda Brown. We just aren't sure which book it is published in.

    Any information would be appreciated!

    Burning Bribery

    A never ending chain
    Enlarged its web
    From ground-floor to roof-top
    Of each building
    Everywhere in our society.

    An inerasable stigma
    An incurable infection
    Leading to corruptions
    Here and there, all over
    In our modern era.

    How shame!
    Laws and orders made,
    Promoted lectures, speeches
    And social awareness,
    Still all efforts in vain.

    Douse who will
    This burning bribery?

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking for a poem about the Fall of Adam and Eve. I read it as an undergrad, but I can't remember the title or the name of the author. I know it was written within the last 100 years, and I think it is a modern or postmodern poem - I feel like maybe it might be written in the last 60-30 years. The poem is quite short (either sonnet length or shorter) and it contains the idea that Adam and Eve were being " digested" by the snake (or something to that effect) . I apologize for having no other information.

    Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated! !
