Poems are chosen from the work of a wide variety of poets published or translated in the English language. The most eminent poets are represented in the selections, but also poets who are less well known can be found. The daily poem is selected for its literary quality and to provide you with a window on a very broad range of poetry offered annually by publishers large and small. Included with each poem is information about the poet and the poem’s source. The purpose of this website 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. Well thousands of 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 can be even more elusive. Poetry Daily will lead you to them and, in the meantime, it gives you a new poem to carry with you through your day and share with others.
