Overview

The companion volumes to this new collection — Poem a Day: Volume 1 and Poem a Day: Volume 2 — have together sold nearly a hundred thousand copies. They are a word-of-mouth sensation among those who want poetry to be a greater presence in their lives, and perennial gift-giving favorites. Like its predecessors, Poem a Day: Volume 3 offers a verse for each day of the year (including February 29) along with brief, often amusing, always interesting anecdotes about the poets and their poems. The original Poem a Day was the brainchild of Englishman Nicholas Albery, a colorful and charismatic figure whose interests ranged from social inventions to a greener environment. He had already commenced work on this volume when he died tragically in a car crash. A foundation was created in his memory, and his friends and colleagues at the Nicholas Albery Foundation completed the work.

    Poem A Day: a scavenger hunt

    Contents of book were improperly arranged prior to binding. The pages are out of order and you will find yourself leafing forward and backward searching for the next sequential page or poem. Remaining inventory should be examined and retrieved if found to be in similar disarray.
