    Hi everyone!

    I was looking through my phone gallery and found a picture of a poem. Anyone know the poet?

    " Song Bird
    She lived among her garden ways,
    like a bird that loves to sing.
    Time to her was but the days
    flowers took for blossoming,
    The world was just a place for spring.

    But she learned a singing bird
    Can not breathe the winter's breath,
    and beating wings will not be heard
    against the wings of death."

    Please, if anyone knows the writer, let me know! It's bugging me so much. Seriously the one thing I can't stop thinking about. THANKS!

      The poet is Kathleen Millay (sister to the more well known Edna St. Vincent Millay) and the poem is found in her book The Hermit Thrush.

    This is my first time to try this. I remember a poem read in high school literature, and it ended '", red, cinnabar" . Or at least it contained this line. Does anyone recognize it?

    Hello! I'm looking for a poem that I believe was written by a Cavalier Poet. The subject matter was basically that, while he had to maintain a facade of happiness and revelry, deep down he was actually unhappy and sad. I'm not 100% that it was a Cavalier Poet, but I believe it was kind of an exception to their typical rule of 'king, women, drink and be happy'... if anyone can help me out.. let me know!

    Hi. I am looking for a poem that I had to learn at school (many years ago now) . I think the title was called " cats" possibly by Walter Dela mare.
    One of the lines went something like. Cats sleep anywhere, on the table under chairs...
    Any help would be much appreciated.

      The poem is " Cats Sleep Anywhere" by Eleanor Farjeon: Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair. Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge. Open draw, empty shoe, anybody ... more

    Hello All,

    I am looking for a poem I read in college about nuns who carve rosary beads from human finger bones. The concept was how the hand is what we focus on after death, for it is rarely still. Any help?

    I am very interested to read the collected poems of Seamus haney if I get a chance to read them since I experience it as the poems of common man, the farmer and tilling masses and experiences of the great poet in real life situations.
