Poetry Spin! * FREE Poetry App for your phone

We are coming to the end of National Poetry Month.

It has been a joy to share Poetry here at

Step On A Crack.

I am looking forward to tomorrow:

Poem in Your Pocket Day.

I will be stopping by the Tattered Cover Bookstore,

and Red and Black books

and Mutiny Books

before the end of the month to peruse the Poetry section

and pick out a few books to take home

in support of Poets.

In the meantime I can at any moment during my day

use my Poetry Foundation App to read new poetry.

I want to share this FREE app with you.



Poetry Mobile App for iPhone and Android

Find and explore poetry
on your phone or tablet.

With the Poetry Foundation’s POETRY mobile app, you can now take hundreds of poems by classic and contemporary poets with you wherever you go.


From William Shakespeare to César Vallejo to Heather McHugh, the Poetry Foundation’s app turns your phone into a mobile poetry library:

  • Search for old favorites with memorable lines.
  • Give your phone a shake to discover new poems to fit any mood.
  • Save your favorite poems to read and share later—through Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail.
  • Read poems by T.S. Eliot, Pablo Neruda, Lucille Clifton, Emily Dickinson, and many others.

  1. Awesome lady, I’m going to a bookstore on Wabash tomorrow after work to search for a hidden gem poet or poetess. Love, Mel


    • YAY!

      I LOVE anthologies myself (or collected works of my favorite poets) I really like: Women in Praise of the Sacred: 43 Centuries of Spiritual Poetry by Women
      edited by Jane Hirshfield

      or a new favorite “risking everything” edited by roger Housden.

      One great (and sad ) thing about buying poetry is that each published run is so small of each book published and so few people buy poetry that the bargain section makes it easy to find new poets for not much money. I love to walk out with 4 new books by poets I have not read. I choose mine by opening to a random page, reading a few pages and if it resonates; its mine. If not, I move on the next.

      Remember the Haunted bookshop? They had the best poetry section EVER! Rivals City Lights even. We were lucky to have the Writers Workshop in town.

      mostly I feel lucky to have you in my life. I would choose you over Poetry. think on that a while….

      Love, Jen
