    I have been looking for this poem for about 8 years! I have always thought it was by Czeslaw Milosz, but i have searched...to no avail. The poem is about " 4 am" - what it is like to be up at 4 am, how it feels, etc.
    Anybody out there have any ideas???
    Would soo love to reconnect with this poem!

    Hello. I am looking for something that is more a prayer/inspirational verse than poem, kind of along the lines of Desiderata. And I remember very little of it. Basically the speaker is asking for some very basic blessings - like food shelter etc, and then goes on to ask that s/he not be so concerned or take too seriously 'the petty (little?) thing called I'. And that's about all I recall. I liked it b/c take myself and my miseries way to seriously at times. Thanks.

    Recently read a poem by Maya Angelou but can't recall title. It talked about products being bought without knowing where it originated from....something about TIMBERLANDS and the persong who owns it being the President of the KKK, NIKE, and others.....then pointing out that FUBU is created by Blacks but we run to buy Timberlands, etc....

    Please, anyone knows the title of this poem???? Thank you

      Maya Angelou did not write the poem attributed to her. It has been debunked as an urban legend. See: http://www.snopes.com/business/alliance/timberland.asp

    Hello everyone. Just wanting to invite you all to check out some of my poems. They are primarily about my past addiction problems and the love of my life who helped me overcome my problem. I like to say they are fairly good, however I am very interested in seeing some feedback from other people. So please stop by my page and view some of my poems if you get a chance. Thank you.

    Hello-Kind of a long shot but-I vaguely remember a line that captures the idea that the pain of being born reverberates throughout life. Perhaps even that cries upon entry echo to the end. Thought maybe it was T.S. Eliot but I searched through Four Quartets, etc... Remind you of anything?

    Thanks,

    Hi there,

    I am searching for a poem I studied years ago and cannot find it anywhere. It was about a man who works in a concentration camp who comes home to kiss his daughter goodnight. I also don't mean the Sylvia Plath poem 'daddy'.

    If anyone can help me it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hi, Sunlight glints off a coffin under dark clouds in the distance. A friend is to be buried. We studied this poem at school at least forty years ago. Probably a poem by a classic British poet. Can you help to identify?Thanks Alan
