Poem-a-Day

The Academy of American Poets runs the original daily poetry series, which features more than 250 brand-new poems each year. Each poem also is accompanied by commentary about the piece by the author. On weekends, the series highlights classic works from well-known poets. And if you’d rather not clutter your inbox, you can also follow the series on social media.
