    Hi. About 25 years ago, I found a poem in a library book and shared it with a former girlfriend. Now I can't find it nor the poem or the author. Here's what I recall of it. " ....you gave me this talisman that none can take....brought me to some dark shore......i'll remember the days I spent with you" . Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Could it possibly be this one? It's not identical to your quotes. http://www.poemhunter.com/best-poems/alexander-sergeyevich-pushkin/the-talisman/

    I'm looking for a poem by Robert Frost about a young boy asking a man about whether the man had seen a flag flying at the school. I cannot recall the title.

    I'm looking for a poem by Robert Frost about a small boy asking a man whether he saw the flag flying at a school when he walked by. It's a great flag day poem, but I can't recall the name of it.

    I came across a poem in an anthology that praised a lady for her excellence as a translator.

    English (!) approx 25 lines, rhyming couplets (pentameter) , approx 1650 - 1750, theme: the (English) lady's good qualities, but especially the art of translation.  
    Sadly, all those 'parameters' are fuzzy-edged.

    I'm looking for a poem, I know it's something modern, like Beckman or Dickman.

    It is sort of a minimalistic poem, and it goes something like this:

    trees, and more trees
    and beyond the trees
    nothing but skies

    It is longer than this, but these are the few fragments that I can still remember.

    Would love your help, such a beautiful poem.
