Thanks for visiting poetry.us.com. This anthology is growing all the time, so please check back often. The poets featured here have picked their most popular poems, or their poems that are their favorites. Not only do you get to read some excellent poetry, but there is a photo and short bio of every poet, and at the bottom of each page the poet has made a comment on their own work or given a writer's tip.
