365 Poems: Poetry mobile

Day 131

iPhone or Android
On our bookshelves, even as we type, are books and books of literature -- poetry and prose. If we were to weigh said books and books, we daresay they would weigh more than us! And that's saying something.

On our Kindle HD Fire, even as we type, are books and books of literature -- poetry and prose. The Kindle is rather like Hermione's charmed traveling bag -- crammed with books, but never weighing more than 14 ounces.

Along these lines, here's one of our favorite apps, which adds nothing in weight to our smartphone, yet allows us to carry a veritable anthology of poetry with us: Poetry Mobile App.

As described:

From William Shakespeare to C├ęsar 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.
It's for iPhone and Android! Links on this page.
