    Can anyone think of a poem that has a theme of 'becoming stonger' or something similar to that. Thanks for any help :)

    I am looking for a poem 'Our Guardians' by Carl Dennis. Actually, the part of this poem is published in VQR but the remainder of it is available only to paid subscribers. I would be very grateful if someone could send me the final part of the poem.

    HELLO everyone. Please help me find this poem or the writer. It might not be easy because for some reason i can't seem to even think of one word in the poem, so searching google didnt help much.

    This poem is about soulmates, but I dont think he ever mentioned the word soulmate in this poem. It is a male poet and probably by a well known poet instead of just any random submitters. It's about 4 sentences in this poem. It has something to do with either two souls or two stones or some type of fragments that was broken into two and finally come together to be completed or something like that.Like I said, I dont remember it having any word of soulmate in it but ideally soulmate is the theme of this short poem or quote. Gosh, I can't believe I dont remember anything about it but just the context of it. If someone has any idea, thank you so so very much.

    Hi everyone-

    Looking for a poem my dad once read to me when I was young-I think it may be titled 'I killed her with my words'-or something to that effect.

    It is a sad story about a country couple, well the guy comes in from a long day of work and is angry with his wife for not having dinner ready, the house the way he wants it, etc., and he goes into a tyrade.

    So his loving and dutiful wife, in an attempt to appease him, goes out into the stormy weather to close one of the barnyard gates or something and gets struck by lightining, or a tree falls on her or something, and she dies. The husband never forgives himself.

    I know it's a long shot but I was wondering if anyone knows of a poem like this?

    ola! i have been searching for a poem i read once, i think it was by beryl baigent? anyway, it goes like this....
    You were not the original green man
    swathed in hooded cloak of verdant leaves
    but when i scaled the hill
    and came upon you
    face to face
    the potency of your presence
    sprang out to embrace me.
    i appreciate any direction! ! ! ! thank you

    I'm looking for a poem-I thinjk World War One era-that contains this passage:

    Those scattered and tumbling walls once were a church
    yet might have been an inn.
    For all the signs of reverence they show,
    save that in the encircling shady yard,
    Heaped with scattered stones,
    the uprooted graves and broken crosses
    speak of holier days.

    Standing stricken, the weary shrapnelled houses
    seem skeletons,
    grim and ghastly shapes
    beckoning with scraggly fingers to the sky
    in silent plea for justice...

    Poem and poet would be greatly appreciated.

      This sounds like a joke from the Marx Brothers, not a poem. See the page on their skit 'Fun in High Skule' at: http: //www.marx-brothers.org/marxology/skule.htm
