Type something in the box below and you'll see lines of poetry beginning with whatever you've typed. The database includes all lines of poetry from every book in Project Gutenberg that has "Poetry" in one of its subject listings (approximately 3.8 million lines).
Click a line to add it to the output area, or click "Add all" to add all of the matching lines. Reload the page to start over.
Note: This interface is case-sensitive, meaning e.g., "It is only" (upper-case "I") returns different results from "it is only" (lower-case "i").
