Top 10 Best Poetry Sites
I am delighted to bring you a lovely guest Top 10 from Brianna Rose Burton.
Brianna shares with us her great love of poetry and has put together a list of the best places to go to find a huge variety of beautiful, inspiring, funny and thought provoking poems and poets. I think there is no better place to start than with her own Literary Diaries Blog. You can also follow Brianna on Twitter @MerDivinity.
Just click on the images to visit these superb sites.
This is my poetry site and I would like to share my passion for poetry with you. As a teenager, I spent a lot of time posting my work on other poetry sites, until recently when I started my own site for today’s young, aspiring writers and poets. Some days I would spend hours searching the Internet for good poets, trying to find exceptional ones of today’s time. I found a couple, and so I made a list of all of them, and then I started my blog. It is exciting to find writers that are incomparable. If you want to read good poems by modern day poets like myself, then you should visit Literary Diaries.
This is a fun site with a huge collection of poetry, from modern day poets to famous ones like Robert Burns, Cicely Fox Smith, Jose Marti, Ernest Hemingway, and many more. I like AllPoetry for its variety, and its genuineness. It is one of the few sites which I glean inspiration from to write my own work. Its poetical wisdom and sincerity really digs deep into your core with its abundant creativity.
Poems & Quotes
I have been a part of this site for three years now. It is a good site for today’s writers to publish their poems and quotes. I have met some great people on P&Q, and you might, too! If you like variety, then visit this site.
This is one of my favorite sites to go to if I want to read only the classics as it’s dedicated to classical poetry. The layout is very serene and buoyant. I totally recommend this website.
YouTube – Def Poetry
Def Poetry is a TV series for poets all around the world. As the number of contributors increases, it has become part of a poetry slam movement. I like to go on YouTube and watch this series because of its great poetical diversity. National Poetry Slam Champion, Taylor Mali, is one of my favorites.
Famous Poets and Poems
This is another great site dedicated to the classics. From Langston Hughes, to Sylvia Plath and William Wordsworth. I am sure this site will satisfy your need for a sip of undeviating creativity. You may even find some inspiration, like I do, from these illustrious authors.
Funny Poems and Poetry
This is a simple site full of comedic poems, ranging from all topics. This is perhaps the best poetry site I have found, particularly if you want a good laugh.
100 Best Love Poems
I love romance, especially romantic poems and novels. This is a wonderful collection of 100 best love poems by contemporary poets.
This is a lovely site for sending a friend a poem to express how you feel. I love how each poem comes with a picture and a song; it’s almost spellbinding, and it keeps your attention.
The Poet Speaks of Art
I love when the beauty of art is conveyed into the grace of words. This site is replete with poems that articulate the themes of different art works. Specific paintings are described through poetry. It’s purely exquisite!
X. J. Kennedy
Toe upon toe, a snowing flesh,
A gold of lemon, root and rind,
She sifts in sunlight down the stairs
With nothing on. Nor on her mind.
We spy beneath the banister
A constant thresh of thigh on thigh–
Her lips imprint the swinging air
That parts to let her parts go by.
One-woman waterall, she wears
Her slow descent like a long cape
And pausing, on the final stair
Collects her motions into shape.
Fantastic compilation, many thanks go to Brianna! Please do let us know who your favourites are!
