I retrieve the stick
and put it back
after following it through the air
each sense attuned to the flight pattern
through which it goes
I run after along with my senses
and use my snout to judge the distance
at which it comes
then I look around
where is it?

All he was supposed to do was get it back. Retrieve the stupid flying disc that always had a way of escaping him. That brightly coloured floppy thing that the upright one kept catching and throwing and taking from him. It was mildly frustrating, but ever so much fun.
That is, until it landed on the dark coloured pavement, and the roaring machine with the blinky eyes and the rolly legs came and charged into him, crushing the magic disc along with his furry skull.

Deep in my soul, behind a curtain of anguish and disillusionment, I am trying to retrieve what used to be the essence of me I could finally reconcile with.

Her fingers twist a single key
Those same fingers reach
into the open
She retrieves a single coin
flips it, heads or tails;
it is, she loses.

When Mom and I were cleaning out my father’s office after his death, I was playing around with one of the cabinets, and accidentally locked it.
“Where’s the key?” I asked but Mom said there wasn’t one.
I kept thinking that there was something important there, that we’d never be able to retrieve now, just because of a few seconds of stupidity.

I retrieved my keys from the depth of my purse looking forward to where the car will take me… There is a world of opportunity awaiting me in those 4 wheels!

Her footsteps echoed through the empty house. She didn’t have much time. The stairs were rickety and yet she climbed them easily. The bedroom was to the right and she slipped inside. The pouch was under the pillow, like she knew it would be. As she retrieved it, she heard voices and moved as silently towards the back of the house as she could, slipping out a second floor window into the night.

The dog bounded after the thrown stick, enthusiasm unending, despite the fact that this was his twentieth time after this particular stick.
“He never does seem to get tired of it, does he,” the girl asked the boy.
Unperturbed by the laughter behind him, the dog came trotting back, his prize in tow.

standing on tip-toes and performing a balancing act, reaching for something on the top shelf of the bookcase, trying not to knock over the entire thing in one silly, clumsy move that would knock over everything.

Retrive I think means to get something back like when a dog gets a disc and it retrives the disc.so that like one example of retriveing something.

Retrieve the data, interpret the data, send the data out. This is what I call your opinion. This is rarely ever fact.

Retrieve is like when you throw a stick and your dog fetches it you probably retrieve something everyday like a pencil or something

To retrive is to take or recive something like a dog retrives it’s treat or toy.

By Morgan Zubrick on 05.25.2012
Dogs retreive things. I guess. Like fetch. UGH this thing takes FOREVER!
By Morgan Blank on 05.25.2012
Can I retrieve all that I’ve lost? All the people, all the friends that broke in my struggle to stay afloat. Tears gather in my eyes. The image of hope gets blurry

My dog Rollie retrieves my other dog Sam we she runs out of the room.
By Mireya:D on 05.25.2012
when you retrieve something it is like when you throw a ball for your dog and then the dog runs and gets the ball and brings it back to you and you say good boy !!!!!!

She had to retrieve the bag from the car. She knew that without her retrieving it, it would probably stay there for a very long time. So she went out to go get it, and then she realized the door was locked so she went to retrieve the keys.

Harry called to Cedric, implored him to save himself, to bolt across the graveyard and retrieve the cup. The Triwizard Cup.

I went to get the baseball back from the neighbor’s yard. Bubbie warned us that the neighbor on that side was not so friendly. We heard the dog barking before we saw him. Big bark, must be scary. Little dog, big bark. Got the ball back.

Sometimes I wish I could retrieve the younger skinny me.
The jazz dancer flirt, the good-time girl, the edgy artiste.
I believe that I can–it’s like the statue hiding in the marble–you just have to let the figure out, shed the extra weight and fly.

to get something from someone can you retrieve a memory or once gone are they gone forever. can a dog retrireve a stick and is that the same as restriving a memory? getting something again or for the first time. does retrive imply you once had it. can you retrieve seomthing you never had. can you retrieve a body form the water as it floats down or only things. memories, bodies, sticks all floating by and making ripples where ever they wander. i reach out and grab as many as i can. i wonder if the ones i don’t retrieve are gone forever or if, the river as a merry go round, they will float past again and i will be able to catch the ones i want. can i throw in the memories and bodies and sticks i do not want, making them avaiable for others to retrieve?

I am known as the Retriever. When you fall asleep at night, I’m the last person you want to dream of.

Sometimes, we lose things, and we have to retrieve them. We lose almost everything. If you lost your keys, you could easily retrieve them. Just retrace your steps.
But what about the big things we lose? What if you lost your mum or dad? Or a grandparent? Or a close friend? How do we retrieve them?
But surely, can not we retrace our steps?
No, we can not.
