    I am looking for a poem involving a person who walks to a fence and observes two horses mating. The poem focuses primarily on the female as she teases the male, leads him on, trots a few feet away, etc. as tough it were an art. The language is rich with sensual allegory and is obviously supposed to be extended to humans. I have been looking for this for a long time, but have not come across it since I first stumbled across it. I would greatly appreciate any help.
    Thank you!

      You're looking for 'A Blessing' by James Wright http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/a-blessing/ The penultimate line is considered one of the great line breaks in poetry.

    DOes anyone know a poem, written by a man, regretting all the evils done by men, particularly against women. The final line of it goes something like 'Mens' crimes......and I feel shamed.' It's a very powerful poem and makes the point that not all men are potential rapists - a point I need to make to a 19 year old who has had a bad experience.

    Thanks for any help.

    I heard a poem on a podcast a few years ago and i'm having trouble finding who the author is. the poem goes as follows:
    'I think about you a lot now, up there in heaven, with the angles whose hair you get tangled up in. Silly how jealous of them I am'
    if anyone knows the author i would really appreciate you letting me know

    I am looking for a poem which has been with me for years since I was a child. I thought it was written by Edgar A. Guest, but now I am not sure. It was about a man and his dog who thought the world of him. I thought the title was something like My Love Affair with Sassy. I have been looking for it all over the internet but no luck. I hope you will help me with this. The ending is rather surprising as the poem is not about the dog in the beginning.

    I am looking for a poem that we had to memorize in Science way back in 1977 or 1978. It goes like this:

    The Kingdom of the Animal
    The Kingdom of the Animal whose phyla number ten
    can easily be mastered by quiet study in your den
    Each animal in nature is classified for you
    It's system of taxonomy, you can easily persue

    In phylum one the protozoa is distinguised from them all
    because life's many functions act within a one celled wall

    In Phyla two periphera the warm sea sponge appears,
    its perforated body often serves us through the years.

    The Hydrochoral(sp?) jellyfish you'll find in phylum three
    Celenterata is its name or prickly to thee.


    etc.....

    I am looking for a poem that I read several months ago. It is written by a woman and it ends with something along the lines of I don't want to look back on a life that was not well lived... something along those lines.

    Thanks!

    Okay, guys, I'm new to the whole 'forum' idea but I really need your help. I was wondering if anyone knows the title of the book I'm talking about. I was looking around Borders one day when I found myself in the 'Young Adult' section looking at the back of this one book. The genre was fantasy. I'm horrible at remembering titles but I distinctly remember on the cover was a man with a (lion, cheetah, panther, etc.) or something like one of those giant cats. The back cover said the book was about a man who had been cursed by an evil witch and turned into a giant I-don't-know-what-type-of cat. The curse could only be broken if a woman was brave enough to marry him. I didn't buy it, but now I regret not doing so. I went back to Borders the next week but it was gone. I searched all over the internet but I never found out what the title was and I so want to read it! It sounded like a really good love story so if anybody knows what book it is, or has any idea of a book that sounds like it, let me know. I really want to read it, and am heartbroken I never found it again. Please let me know if you think you've seen it before or know it.

    Thanks!

    Hi there can anyone help! I have seen a poem online recently and its quite long. it has several sentences which finish with things like 'that is called / is known as courage/ strength / honesty
    so it says a line then the next line says this is known as / is called then the words that match that statement so either strenght, courage, honesty etc etc.
    Sorry its a bit vague but does it ring a bell with anyone? its an anon poem
    Thanks for looking Lynsey
