18 Great Poetry Websites

UPDATE–3 of these sites disappeared. I’ve deleted them. Now there are 15 Great Poetry Websites…

  4. I would like to invite all young or old to ourpoetrycorner@wordpress.com educational poetry along with everything else! Great site for children to learn about their country and the American Heroes, sure you will all enjoy!

  5. Thank YOU very much Donna for your kind words on ourpoetrycorner@wordpress.com My style of writing is unique as I combine facts with poetry about our country America and the people who made this country great American Heroes. I recommend all ages especially our young people. They all should know about their country they live in. I figure if they can learn lyrics in a song in five minutes then they can learn America and American Heroes, education is of great value. Also posted are many other topics on our poetry corner. A pleasure to stop by and read, Thank YOU, Ron
