What should I do if I found a poem?

If you have ended up here, it must be because you were intrigued or inspired.  It's up to you whether you keep the card, or leave it somewhere for others to find. 

If you have been reminded that there is a poetry-shape hole in your life, explore some of the links at the bottom of the page, or, better, go to a library and read some poetry books. 

Many people, it seems, are innoculated against poetry by their education - we are left feeling that poetry is hard, demanding a response we may be unable to give. Poems asks nothing but your attention.  Some will speak to you, some will not.  We are not obliged to like, or understand, every poem.
