This site exists for one purpose only: to help dispel the ugly myth that poetry is boring. Granted, a lot of poetry is boring, but you won't find it here. At Your Daily Poem, you'll find poetry that is touching, funny, provocative, inspiring, and surprising. It may punch you in the gut, it may bring tears to your eyes, it may make you laugh out loud, but it most assuredly will not bore you.

Poetry on YDP—by poets living and long dead, famous to completely unknown--is specially selected for accessibility and appeal. If you enjoy the site, please tell others about it; there's a "Share" button on the left to make that easy.

Thanks so much for visiting—and remember: a poem a day keeps the doldrums away!

 




A Song in Spring
by
Thomas S. Jones, Jr.

O little buds all bourgeoning with Spring,
  You hold my winter in forgetfulness;
Without my window lilac branches swing,
Within my gate I hear a robin sing—
  O little laughing blooms that lift and bless!       
 
So blow the breezes in a soft caress,
  Blowing my dreams upon a swallow’s wing;
O little merry buds in dappled dress,
You fill my heart with very wantonness—
  O little buds all bourgeoning with Spring!
