Extra stanza for Selichot on Taanis Esther - Thanks to the IMHM blog:

תַעֲנֶה לְקורְאֶיךָ וְהַסְכֵת מִמְעונִים:
תִשְמַע שַוְעַת צועֲקֶיךָ שומֵעַ אֶל אֶבְיונִים:
תְרַחֵם בָנֶיךָ כְרַחֵם אָב עַל בָנִים:
עֲנֵנו כְמו שֶעָנִיתָ לְמָרְדְכָי וְאֶסְתֵר וְתָלוי עַל הָעֵץ חֲמִשִים הָאַב עִם בָנים
[Update: Yitzhak writes to me that:
"I'm not sure I understand what has been newly discovered. The stanza תענה לקוראך is well known, with many (most?) modern Siddurim includingit, often in parenthesis and / or with an accompanying note that customs vary over its inclusion. אוצר התפילות has it in parenthesis, although עבודת ישראל doesn't have it at all. קול יעקב החדש, סידור ווילנא and (at least one edition of) the Artscroll Siddur have it (with parentheses and / or notes), while (at least one edition of) תקון מאיר does not." ]
