Tips and Suggestions to find Poems:
- Use LRC (Literature Resource Center) to look up poems by genre (sonnets, haikus, quatrains, etc.), or search by poet or title.
- Search for a poet's name - generally, individual poems will not be listed, you'll want to look for a collection of works by a poet. You could also search for keywords, such as "medieval poetry" or "slam poets" to find collections by time period or genre.
