[BKARTS] Poetry

        I happened to be at Project Gutenberg looking for a poetry book today and came across one with lots of poems suitable for your use.  If you are not familiar with Project Gutenberg it posts text copies of out of copyright books.  Project Gutenberg is the Internet's oldest producer of FREE electronic books (eBooks or eTexts).  You can go to their home page at: http://www.promo.net/pg/
        The book with the poems you will find helpful is:
The Home Book of Verse, by Burton Stevenson #1 in our 8 volume Home
Book of Verse series by Stevenson V4 and V5 correspond to the two halves
of "Part IV" as they were in two volume editions of over 3700
pages:  half is in each Vol.
        The link to it is:  http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext01/1hbov10.txt
I am sure if you look in the table of contents you will find something you can use then scroll down to the poem its self.  Good luck with your project.  PS - It is a large file they broke the 3700 page two volumes into four parts but it still takes awhile.
