    How do I withdraw my poem from your silly little popularity contest?

    Yes, we'll I just happen to be looking for a poem.
    It must be somewhere that I eventually will find it.
    Cause I've searched for poems before, &they were where I looked last.
    Usually it's a matter of Life I lead. This impromptu existence.
    Like when the rent was due, and I wasn't ready.
    Or when I recall the best pert of an old movie I love.
    As well, the search commences when mean things become meaner.
    But mostly, it's just like today, our ordinary Life.
    Looking, waiting wanting that poem....
    the one that describes my reason for living.

    i'm looking for a poem posted by someone in the on-going contest on this site. It was about bridge and a castle of clay crumbling down and finding yourself and your place. i don't remember the name of the poem only that it had the word " Bridge" in it. I know it's not much to go by but I really hope to find this poem.. It was the best entry among all I read.

    I can't seem to locate a poem by William Packard that sounded something like: " Everything is going to be all right, and even if it isn't, everything is going to be all right." Can anyone help?

    What's a good poem that can be read in 6 minutes?

      Try " Two Tramps in Mud Time" by Robert Frost. It has lots of wisdom and if read slowly enough, reaches close to 6 minutes.

    What does " online" mean next to a poem you have published?

      The only poem I know about petrels is " The Song of the Stormy Petrels" by Maxim Gorky, in which the petrel symbolizes the Russian Revolution

    Respected fellow poets. I would be most happy if you read through my simple poem 'End Of Existence' which is written regarding Female infanticide. The link is given below. Please vote and comment. With good wishes to all.
