Your Daily Poem
This site exists for one purpose only: to help dispel the ugly myth that poetry is boring. Granted, a lot of poetry is boring, but you won’t find it here. At Your Daily Poem, you’ll find poetry that is touching, funny, provocative, inspiring, and surprising. It may punch you in the gut. It may bring tears to your eyes, it may make you laugh out loud, but it most assuredly will not bore you.
“from the Academy of American Poets. It says ‘Poetry is a necessity of life. It is a function of poetry to locate those zones inside us that would be free, and declare them so.”
– CD Wright Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2013-2016)
