    Long time ago I read a poem about a girl whose lover Billy(?) dies. She rides with death and ends up staying with him. Rather vague I know but does it ring a bell.

    Hey everybody,

    I'm looking for this one poem. It's called italic and goes something like this

    I used to live in capitals
    my life was (something) phallic
    but now I'm sadly lowercase
    with the occasional

    it's a also a visual poem with the first two lines written in capitals, the next two in lowercase and the last in italic font.
    would be great if somebody knew the writers name.

    I read a poem in high school once about a man that constantly read romantic tales of knights and chivalry and wished he was born in that time period. However, he spends so much time dreaming about this that he neglects the real world. I think it was written in the 19th or early 20th century but that's all I can recall. Any suggestions?

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a poem by a Middlesbrough poet. I am sure he was called Arthur Abbott. The poem starts something like this 'Everyone needs a friend, to tell their trouble to, one who cares and knows you're there, someone just like you.' Struggling to reme, ber the title or find the actual poem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    " a dream of bees" , perhaps not a poem exactly which may be why i haven't found it on the web. it was about an unborn child being offered different gifts for it's life while still in the womb by a swarm of bees, i think. it spurned the usual gifts we would want and took the gift of a troubled and difficult path or something like it. i believe it was by a woman and i don't remember where i saw it at least 10 or 15 years ago but it completely fit my life. any clues would be appreciated.

    Looking for a poem by Lord Byron which was set to music (in German) by Robert Schumann.
    The first line is " Mein Herz ist schwer" . An English translation would be, " my Heart is heavy" .
    The published song's title is " Aus den hebraische Gesange" (" From the Hebrew Songs" .
    Thank you!

    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.
