    I had to learn a poem for school back in the late 1970's. I can not remember if it was in a text book or a book of poetry for elementary children. The poem was, if I remember correctly, called " The Smell of Wood Smoke" . I believe it started out " Wood smoke has the nicest smell and lots of stories it can tell" . I think another part was something like " lovers holding hands and making plans" or " dreaming dreams and making plans" . Every fall, I think of this poem and start searching anew. Thank you for time and help.

    Hi. My Gran (90 yrs) remembers learning this part of a poem, she thinks the author was Allan Paton, or Allan Junior, please help. Gran can remember the following: some men thank God for the day that is done, but I thank him rather for one begun, for the chance to live as I know I should, and with his good grace as I know I could. So I face the world each morn anew, glad of the work I have to do. The work that tests and trains and try's what manner of spirit within me lies. The work that shows to the men I meet the man I shall be at the Judgement seat.

    I'm looking for a poem I studied a few years ago. I can't remember specific lines, nor title nor author, but the poem was centered around a library, possibly after the end of the world, I think there was mention of humans having left earth, and it was about the decay of the books and how it was being forgotten. Any ideas?

    Hi all,

    Looking for a poem my Grandfather recited to me many years ago - can't recall verse, structure or author, only a vague outline of the content. A big ask I know, but I have tried typing the general premise in to various search engines without any success, so I come to this community on my knees. Please help!

    The poem is about a young boy excited to be given a slingshot or air rifle, he then takes it outside and kills a sparrow. The big line is something about him wounding his own heart with the weapon. Will be very thankful to whoever can figure this out.

    Many thanks,

    I wish an angel descend the sky
    To save my juvenile body
    From the yab of these beasts
    Who played hide and seek
    With my pride
    Will i again ever have my say
    In the midst of my peers
    When i no more can lay claim
    On my chastity with a swear?
    How long will this memory last
    Feasting on my joys, forever?
    Forever?Let me die
    Than live with this 'beast mark'
    Mounted on my brow
    You beast better take my life
    As you do to my virginity
    I can't stand stinking gobs
    Spitting venom on my face
    Knowing that i am a deflowered girl
    A symbol of dilemma
    Oh death!
    Come ease my pains

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to find a copy of a children's poem by Rupert Loydell called " If you were made of chocolate" . I managed to find a version on the internet, but only 5 of the 6 stanzas, will the final stanza missing. I know it can be found in Loydell's book of poems called " The Fantasy Kid" , and in a collection of children's poems called " Sensational: Poems chosen by Roger McGough" , but unfortunately I can't find copies of either book where I'm based.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks loads!

    I'm looking for an anonymously written poem (or at least I believe I remember reading that its author was anonymous when I had it) . The only lines I remember are something to the effect of:

    You are not where you are,
    You're where you're getting to,
    And I'd like to get there too.

    I believe those to be the closing lines of the poem though I can't remember very well.
