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!


Hot Flashes
Phyllis Beckman

Watching a George Clooney movie,
I forget to act my age.
I love the way he smiles at me;
George Clooney is all the rage!
I like the way his bedroom eyes
look deeply into mine;
I'm flushed and hot and sweaty,
and still feel mighty fine.
From my dreamboat George Clooney
I'll never be apart;
I'll hold this famous movie star
in my mind and in my heart
he's the bomb!

How fun! One of my colleagues used to keep a picture of Colin Firth in a fancy frame on her desk. If people asked about it, she'd say she was dating him. It was fun to watch their reactions!
