Since we last featured Poem-a-Day in the 2018-01-19 Scout Report, this resource continues to provide readers with an ever-increasing database of new and classic poems.
The Academy of American Poets' Poem-a-Day is, "is the original and only daily digital poetry series featuring over 2500 new, previously unpublished poems by today's talented poets each year." Every day this website features a new poem, which visitors may choose to receive in their email inbox (by simply entering their email address in a sign-up box on the website) or explore on this site. The series features a blend of work from both contemporary poets and famous poets of yesteryear. Looking for a poem for a specific event or mood? This site also allows visitors to browse the Poem-a-Day archive by occasion (e.g. election day, break-ups, graduation), by theme (e.g. environment, parenting, vanity), or by form (e.g. acrostic, haiku, sonnet).
