A poem is a form of artistic literature which uses skillful and creative choices of words to create a specific rhythm, rhyme, form or pattern which in turn achieves a desired emotional or visual effect. This PoetrySoup page provide access to thousands of poems by international poets. If you are new to poetry, see How to Write a Poem and What Makes Good Poetry?
Search poems by keywords, length, form (Haiku, Sonnet, Ballad, etc.), and category (love, life, winter, etc.). Enter a word or words to search for (e.g. "roses anniversary"). When you search for more than one word, the arrangement of the words is important. Writing “Allan Poe” versus “Poe Allan” will change results. To control or refine your search use the Search Word(s) dropdown control and select either "Exact Phrase", "All Words", or "Any words".
