Dear friends, many of you are wondering if it would be possible to bring their old poems back. Our team has made a tireless effort in the last few months to recover some of the old content from internet archive records, and indeed managed to save thousands of poem and poet records. You can use our search box to look for your old stuff, either by poet name or poem title, and also claim ownership for the findings by filling up a form. We do realize, that unfortunately, not all the material from the old days of Poetry.com will be available.
