Welcome to the Poetry Archives, an educational resource to aid students, educators, and the curious. We have collected thousands of classical poetry to provide you with a way to casually browse, recall fond memories, and even to create new ones. To quickly search for keywords in the first-line or title of a poem, a search feature is always located at the top right of each page. If you are looking for a specific classical poem but can't seem to find it in the collection, try our active discussion forum. We constantly monitor user requests and add them if they aren't under a copyright.

If you have visited before, you have probably noticed that we have changed the user interface and added a few features. We have added a printable version of the site so you can print your favorite poems without the navigation and advertisements. We are also in the process of adding many more new features. So continually visit and help support this Internet resource.
