Due to popular demand we have extensively expanded our Poetry resources on the blog. You can find the new revamped Poetry Page under the Reading Tab on the Cabra Library Blog Homepage. There are some really useful online resources here. Everything from searchable poetry databases, (search by poet, poem title, subject, first line), guides to poetry terminology, First World War Poetry Archive, the list goes on.
