Poem for the Day Two is a repeat of the formula which made Poem for the Day such a well-loved favourite. There are 366 poems (one for each day of the year, and one for leap years), to delight, inspire and excite. Chosen for their magic and memorability, the poems in this anthology are an exultant mix of old and new from across the world, poems to learn by heart and take to heart.


  • A treasure-trove, an adventure trail and a cabinet of wonders — Andrew Motion

  • It’s a brilliant concept and should give a lot of pleasure to all ages ― Daily Mail

  • Poem for the Day Two is the poetry book I read every day. It is a total joy — Carol Ann Duffy

  • Praise for Poem of the Day: ‘This book is a dream, a revivalist campaign, a challenge, a fundraising vehicle, a book of days and an anthology, all in one’ ― Guardian

  • I’ve never read poetry but thought I would read one poem each day whilst stuck in lockdown. It is a good book with snippets of information about the poet or the date. I was really pleased.

  • This is a new anthology of well-loved poems, old and new — one for each day of the year. Chosen for their narrative and rhythm so that they can be learned by heart, the poems are framed by entertaining snippets of information about the poet, the poem or the date.

The Author of Poem for the Day was the brainchild of Nicholas Albery, who tragically was killed in a car accident as Poem for the Day Two was getting off the ground. His colleague Stephanie Weinrich has taken over the selection, and royalties will go to Nicholas Albery’s charitable foundations, under the banner of the Institute for Social Inventions.
