Web Sites: Daily Poetry
Why I am recommending Daily Poetry:
The more I learn about poetry, the more I love it. It could be said that life is a poem and if that is true than I believe we are, each one of us, -- it's muse...
From the Site:
Poetry Daily is an anthology of contemporary poetry which each day brings you a new poem from books, magazines and journals currently in print. Poems are chosen from the work of a wide variety of poets published in the English language. Our most eminent poets are represented in the selections, but also poets who are less well known.
The daily poem is selected for its topical or seasonal interest, as well as for its literary quality. Included with each poem are information about the poet and attribution of the poem's source.
Our purpose is to make it easier for people to find poets and poetry they like and to help publishers bring news of their books, magazines and journals to more people. Over 1,000 books of poetry are published in the United States alone each year, but they can be difficult to find, even in areas brimming with bookstores. The numerous journals presenting new poetry and poets are even more elusive. We will lead you to them. In the meantime, we will give you a daily poem to carry with you through your day and to share with others.
