Reading a poem is a form of meditation. It requires attention to every word, and awareness of the preceding words as well – one has to be fully present when reading, if one wants to understand the poem.

The Academy of American Poets has a website in which you can search for poets and poems, by title, theme, occasion, or specific poets. You can also sign up to get a poem emailed to your in-box every morning! Visit poets.org to sign up. While you’re there, consider donating or becoming a member. They are providing value and information – a comprehensive poetry library at your fingertips, no ads, just poetry. Who doesn’t love that?
