Looking For A Poem
(3/3/2014 11:04:00 AM)
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!

I'm looking for a poem that was on here a few years ago, I don't know how to find it. But the name of the poem was " My Love Is Like A Gloomy Day In June" . I can't remember who wrote it. Thank you!

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.
Laws and orders made,
Promoted lectures, speeches
And social awareness,
Still all efforts in vain.
Douse who will
This burning bribery?

I'm looking for a poem, like the one that I just finished to read. No worries, no sad, no confusion; It was very beautiful, in deed.

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! !

I'm looking for a copy of, if I am remembering the title correctly. It's been more than 40 years since I last read it, a poem called " Ode to a leather Bottle" by that ever prolific writer Anonymous.

Does anyone know if " The Man in The Arena" , a Theodore Roosevelt quote, will ever become an addition to this site?

" There's two parts to love
So why does it come gift wrapped as one gift.
It's like when you fall in love your heart slips
Between the arms of a Double sided Rolex
One arm reading beautiful and romantic stories which you can only read slowly in time.
And the other cracked and brittle
Equivalent to a heart which has been stripped away of happiness and deprived of an end.
How unique love can be?
Stimulating the thoughts of romantic souls to search for a meaning,
Unfortunately to find, you never stop loving someone you only find someone else to think about.
And when your mind goes blank and your heart feels hollow.
You seek others to complete your mind and seek more love to hopefully fill your heart when smothered in it.
And as we try to chase love, love continues to chase us.
Sometimes we catch up and feel it for only a moment
Until we lose track of reality and fall from gods finger tips! "
