Here are some websites I think you will enjoy, dear reader.

Poetry Foundation:

The website of the publisher of Poetry magazine.  An excellent resource for poetry and essays about poetry.  Read poems, learn about the lives of poets, and discover new works.

Refine the Mind:

A wonderful blog featuring philosophical posts from many different voices.  The blog seeks to further freethinking, strive towards meaningful living, and discourage all forms of oppression.  I have been a contributing writer there in the past.

And because this is my blog, here's the article I wrote for Refine the Mind, entitled "Drunk on Words: Why You Should Read Poetry Daily."  It's a topic near and dear to my heart, and I hope you enjoy reading it.
