Online gallery of English-language poetry
Welcome to
Poetry is one of the world's oldest art forms. The ability of words to
convey thoughts and emotions is one of humanity's greatest assets.
Here you will find a showcasing of English language poetry, both
traditional and modern. Feel free to browse our pages or contact
us for comments or literary suggestions for our gallery.
A selection of the most renowned poets in the English language are
featured here. Poetry, even in its many forms, is a continuing tradition
that draws both on the past and on present influences.
Also featured are several accomplished modern writers
of traditionally-themed or inspirational poetry. These include
published works as well as homepage galleries for
talented newcomers and for experienced creators
of previously unpublished works.
Look for your favorite poets— and some you may not have heard of—
