Looking For A Poem
(9/2/2013 5:05:00 PM)
Hey guys! So I took creative writing at NYU a few years ago and my prof had us read a poem that really stuck with me. The concept was about a husband looking back on a marriage and it did seem kind of sad/negative. He mentions what life has been like, kids, etc. The line length varied from short to medium length. The only clear line I can remember is " Why couldn't you have lost your virginity to me?" . In the version she printed out for us, there was a picture of a blue/green eye above the poem. Please help! ! ! ! !
Thanks y'all! ! !

The recent sad news about the death of seamus Heaney has reminded me of a poem read out by a distant relative at the funeral or my godfather and uncle in Ireland a couple of years ago. I've tried to google it and can't find it. No ideas who it's by and I feel it inappropriate to email and ask out of the blue. From what i remember the poem is about someone, possibly god speaking to people of different professions giving them advice. Each line starts with to the....he said. Eg to the poet he said..... Very moving at the time and I would love to discover the actual poem
Any help much appreciated

I'm looking for a poem I found some years back. All I can remember is some lines from it.
If you recognise then can you please contact me.
Through this frail glass have eyes a few
Seen upon the grass a fairy dew.
Or when even come with work well done
A pumpkin moon pretend the sun.
Thanks in advance

I am looking for a poem that my mother-in-law shared about how fast kids grow up. There is a line about sewing a button. I remember standing at your door. I wished I stayed a minute more. Thanks for your help

I am looking for a poem that I memorized in kindergarten in 1948. the first lines are:
" God made the great wide world.
He made you and me.
He made the earth and the sky
and the deep blue sea."

I'm looking for a poem I heard on the radio (an interview on public radio with the poet, in 2007) by a contemporary male poet about parents, essentially watching them grown older and infirm, possibly including mourning them after their death. I think it was parents, and not a specifically a mother or father. I know there was some reference to the discomfort/embarrassment we feel when we think about our conception. I would LOVE to find this poem again.

I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out. I'm looking for a poem that I originally read in the The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I no longer have the book that it was in and I can't seem to find a copy of the book anywhere that contains the poem. I know a few lines from the poem, although I'm not sure if they are in the correct order or if I'm missing any lines in between.
Two men together came aboard
to join the teeming anxious hoard
The first was brawny big and strong
the second sickly with hair worn long
Two men bound by bonds hid deep
the smaller one cried in his sleep
Tormented man he frets and curses
words too strong for published verses
Til came his friends restraining hand
round his throat like iron band
Be silent partner stay your breath
or at my hands you'll meet your death.
If anyone knows the name of the poem (or the original author as I'm not sure that it was Mark Twain) it would be greatly appreciated.
