My Cart 

This site exists for one purpose only: to help dispel the ugly and absolutely untrue 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, uplifting, 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. Thanks so much for visiting—and remember: a poem a day keeps the doldrums away!


Yash Seyedbagheri

sky swims in pink, peach, and lavender
shadows shimmer in the ice
a light comes on
and then another
like flickering fireflies
inviting you to play
someone laughs

Yash, you have written an imagistically rich poem . . . good poets paint pictures with words. Nicely done!
