Founded in 1997, Poetry Daily is a 501(c)3 non-profit daily anthology of contemporary poetry. Our editors read journals and books of poems first published from the widest range of sources we can find, from across the US and the world—and we continually seek to expand that reading. We carefully select the best and most interesting poems from those publications for our thousands of readers.
Each day we present one of those poems to you. Poems are chosen from the work of a wide variety of poets published or translated in the English language. Poetry’s most eminent writers are represented in our selections and also poets who are less well known. Included with each poem is information about the poet and the poem’s source.
