I need a poem for a school project, about 8 to 9 1/2 minutes long. It's supposed to be either morbid or "deeply emotional." I have no ide whgere to start looking, so if anyone knows of anything that might work out, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Try Thomas Gray's "Elegy written in a country churchyard" which is BOTH morbid and "deeply emotional."

You will be delighted to find that It neatly fits your time constraints, being 8 minutes 12.7725 seconds long

I'm not quite sure how long it is, but you might want to take a look at the "Rime of the Ancient Mariner." It's pretty depressing on lots of levels.

I think you could try a part from "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" by Oscar Wilde which is very sad and emotional even a bit morbid I think yawning smiley)

"He did not wear his scarlet coat,
For blood and wine are red,
And blood and wine were on his hands
When they found him with the dead,
The poor dead woman whom he loved,
And murdered in her bed....."
