Does anyone remember a particular poem that art critic Harold Rosenberg wrote?

Does anyone remember a particular poem that art critic Harold Rosenberg wrote? It began something like "The best something-or-other" and had a line about some feeling - surprise, perhaps - as light filled a room. Sorry for the immense vagueness. Thanks.

Does anyone remember the rest of a short poem by Ernst Wichert, in German?

does anyone remember - in german - the rest of a short poem by ernst wichert that begins "wir wissen wann kommt der taifun..."? as i recall, it was about how one can tell a storm is coming because their neighbors, even before the storm comes, are losing their heads, and the expression, "losing their heads" means the same in german as "losing their roofs." thanks.

Commission a poem online?

Is there anywhere online where I can commission a poem? I’d like to set a price, pick a topic, pick a format, and get a poem in return. Sort of a work-for-hire thing where I own the product. (If I ever did anything with it, I’d always give full credit to the author, but having to deal with royalties sort of defeats the point of commissioning the work.) I know there are places to do this with code (rentacoder) or products (ponoko) or even design and music (crowdspring and musikpitch*), but is there anything analogous for writers? [more inside]

Help me pick a poem for a gift.

Poetry filter: I am looking for a relatively short (no longer than 10-12 lines) poem or excerpt of a poem (or especially lyrical piece of prose) that conveys the message: "When we are far apart, or fighting, or things are bad, remember that I love you/that we make each other happy." This is for a relationship that is serious but not committed, so please nothing that includes talk of being together forever or being the only one for someone.
