Some time ago I came across a website of poems... Listed there were some poems by a poet, who wrote about his liaisons (brief; so-called "one night stands", shall we say) with women. I'd like to know his name (or other poets who wrote like that).
If it's any help to you, I recall that it was not a commercial website, and had poems of Cavafy and some other popular poets as well.

Will pay more if the answers are satisfactory :)

With so little to go on, I suspect it will be well-nigh impossible to locate the website that you're remembering. Any additional clues would be helpful.

This page has links to several poems that you might like:

All the poems could be classified as classical. And the website was one person's personal endeavour, could be part of a personal home page. All the poets were old and rather well known. Cavafy's Ithaca was definitely there, but then again, it's almost everywhere.

Pinkfreud, thanks for the try :) I know it's a hard one... No hard data to start with.

Anyone live in Massachusetts?  I've heard that a lot of great erotic poetry was written by a man from Nantucket.

The poems I had in mind are not erotic at all, though that's largely subjective. The poet describes the woman, the location, time of day, feelings etc.

Moments.

I _am_ a bit disappointed. But pinkfreud was right. There wasn't much to go on on.

Hi syspriv,

I'm sorry we couldn't find the answer to this one. I just want to let you know that many of Uclue's researchers worked on this, and came up blank.

Thanks for posting this intriguing question.
