Being able to step back from the busyness, the challenges we all face, in our 24/7 world of this 21st century, enjoy a comforting beverage, and travel back in time through the centuries each day to enjoy the poem of the day... and a story...... each day there it is... in the app... There is also the ability to communicate with others in the community that appreciate the classics as you may comment on what you read, highlight favorite lines... and now share personal poetry, plus so much more ......quiet enrichment each day, Thank you so much to those who made this possible...❤️
Edit: Took a very long break from this app only to come back and find I’ve been missing out on a LOT. This is seriously a readers best app. Poems, songs, plays, stories, all in a single app. And NO IN-APP PURCHASES! Seriously fantastic, I can’t thank the dev team enough. You really can’t ask for more here. The poems are amazingly chosen and the app functions well. If you have any interest in poetry, or struggle finding good pieces on your own, get this app.
I have been using this app as part of my daily meditation practice. It has always been inspiring and has introduced me to poets I have never read before. But the recent upgrade has transformed it into an even more superb way to bring literature into your life. You can now read short stories and even listen to the plays of Shakespeare! I recommend it wholeheartedly.
