Presented by the Close Reads Podcast Network, The Daily Poem offers one essential poem each weekday morning. From Shakespeare and John Donne to Robert Frost and E..E Cummings, The Daily Poem curates a broad and generous audio anthology of the best poetry ever written, read-aloud by David Kern and an assortment of various contributors to the Close Reads network. Some lite commentary is included and the shorter poems are often read twice, as time permits.

Customer Reviews

Please slow down

Excited to find this podcast! I am appreciating the poem selection and reading, but it would really help if you could slow down a little. If I adjust the speed on my own to half, the reader’s voice sounds ridiculous and is hard to understand.

Something beautiful

I love to listen to this podcast for the beauty of it, not to take in more information. I love that the poems are read twice. I would appreciate them read a little more slowly.

Soul Filling

Listening to this podcast is wind in our sails, a deep breath in our lungs and beauty for our souls. Our favorite part of the day. Poems picked are read twice, details given about the pier and a skimming of information on the form and meaning. Seasonal and aptly timed throughout the year.
