The Academy of American Poets yesterday announced a very cool new feature on its website: a searchable database of more than 2,500 poems, along with essays and biographies. It's called Poets.org In Your Pocket.

The academy says the database is designed to be easily used with an Apple iPhone or other mobile devices, and is searchable by author, title, or keyword, like a library database. Try it here.

In a release, Academy director Tree Swenson said, "I have always believed that poetry has a necessary place in American life. As the first arts organization to offer mobile content, the Academy of American Poets affirms its imperative to connect people to poetry by creating free and simple access for everyone."
