Did the greeks have poetry in the mythology days?? or was it just the romans. im trying to find another difference bewteen the romans and the greeks in thier glory days.....
Both had poetry. The only main difference is the names and possible uses for their gods. The Greeks may have had more and better poetry than the romans.
This is not necessarily true.
The majority of Greek poetry that we study in school and college was written in the 400s BCE and earlier.
The majority of Roman poetry that we study in school and college was written after Greece's "Golden Age" (5th century BCE). The Romans modeled much of their culture, including literature, on what the Greeks had done.

I am trying to find the author of this poem, plus the poem in it's entirety.
"But that was long ago...In Greece's golden age...when to and fro..walked nymphs and cherubim...and strange cold elves...upon whom the pale moon shone."
