    Hi Good people. I have been searching for what I think is a Robert Frost poem for years! ! !
    Perhaps you could help me? All I recall are 2 things: First, I loved the short poem! ! !
    Second, it was about our brief lives and had some words like... we enter this world in
    the stars and we exit in trail of stars. I know this is about as vague as possible, right?
    Just wondered if it might be enough to reconnect me to the poem. Thanks, Sincerely, Steve

    Hey guys! So I took creative writing at NYU a few years ago and my prof had us read a poem that really stuck with me. The concept was about a husband looking back on a marriage and it did seem kind of sad/negative. He mentions what life has been like, kids, etc. The line length varied from short to medium length. The only clear line I can remember is " Why couldn't you have lost your virginity to me?" . In the version she printed out for us, there was a picture of a blue/green eye above the poem. Please help! ! ! ! !

    Thanks y'all! ! !

    The recent sad news about the death of seamus Heaney has reminded me of a poem read out by a distant relative at the funeral or my godfather and uncle in Ireland a couple of years ago. I've tried to google it and can't find it. No ideas who it's by and I feel it inappropriate to email and ask out of the blue. From what i remember the poem is about someone, possibly god speaking to people of different professions giving them advice. Each line starts with to the....he said. Eg to the poet he said..... Very moving at the time and I would love to discover the actual poem

    Any help much appreciated

    Hi All

    I'm looking for a poem I found some years back. All I can remember is some lines from it.

    If you recognise then can you please contact me.

    Through this frail glass have eyes a few
    Seen upon the grass a fairy dew.
    Or when even come with work well done
    A pumpkin moon pretend the sun.

    Thanks in advance

    Bob

    I am looking for a poem that my mother-in-law shared about how fast kids grow up. There is a line about sewing a button. I remember standing at your door. I wished I stayed a minute more. Thanks for your help

    I am looking for a poem that I memorized in kindergarten in 1948. the first lines are:
    " God made the great wide world.
    He made you and me.
    He made the earth and the sky
    and the deep blue sea."

    I'm looking for a poem I heard on the radio (an interview on public radio with the poet, in 2007) by a contemporary male poet about parents, essentially watching them grown older and infirm, possibly including mourning them after their death. I think it was parents, and not a specifically a mother or father. I know there was some reference to the discomfort/embarrassment we feel when we think about our conception. I would LOVE to find this poem again.
