The Poet’s Almanac bridges the divide between a humdrum weather report and a book of poetry. By using meteorological information and a customized library of poems, the application is able to provide poetry based on the weather. Matthew Murrey's "First Song" heralds a rainy day, and an afternoon of San Francisco fog invites the reader to enjoy the words of Sally Fisher. All of the poems have been handpicked by the staff at Poetry East from the journal's archives and attributed with a temperature and weather type.

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed it for a couple of weeks, but for several days now have not received a poem, only see the rooster icon and message "sorry there has been an error." Have deleted app and reinstalled but still no poem.
Love using this app
It's the best app to wake up in the morning.
Font size too small
I love this app but please make font size bigger. It's ridiculously small.
