      The poem is " Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" by Dylan Thomas (not Thomas Hardy) and you can find it here:

    I am looking for a poem I had about 20 yrs ago. It is about God and relationships. I don't remember the exact lines but its a poem of God talking to you about not serching for the perfect relationship. To be patient and when you are ready He will provide you with the most perfect one he has chosen for you. If anyone knows of this poem or where to find it please reply.

    Looking for a humorous peom describing the degrees of burglery (e.g., first degree, second degree, etc) . The one line I remember is partial and goes " ..and if in the dwelling you hurt someone" . This poem is probably 30 years old.

    This poem is to help one remember the presidents of the United States in the chronological order in which they served.

    The first on the list is Washington Virginia's proudest name.
    John Adams next the Federalist from Massachusetts came.
    Three sons of old Virginia into the White House go.
    T'was Jefferson and Madison and then came James Monroe.

    Massachusetts for one term sent Adams called John Q.
    And Tennessee a Democrat, brave Jackson Staunch and true.

    The poem continued on through Harry Truman. I would love to have it again

    This is part of a poem my mother would sing to her grand children. Is it familiar to anyone?

    Come little leaf said the wind one day
    Over the fields with me to play
    Put on your blanket of red and gold
    Summer is gone and the night is cold

    I'm trying to find a poem I had to recite when I was young, it would have been in the 1970's.

    It was about honeysuckle and the only part I can remember goes something like: The thing about honeysuckle is it grows so very tall.. there was also mention of the neighbours wall. I'm not sure if this was written by someone local or if it was a published verse or poem.

    Thanks very much.

    I'm looking for a poem I used to have, I believe it begins " Down they come, the Autumn leaves, playing tag among the trees" . The poem ends with " When winds of Autumn whisper come" .
