The Three Best Sites with Contemporary Poems:

1. American Academy of Poets - http://www.poets.org/

"This site has poems that are still under copyright as well as many that are not. Probably the most comprehensive source of good, contemporary poetry. Has supplementary material and audio as well as a feature that allows "visitors to create their own anthologies of content from our site."

2. The Internet Poetry Archive - http://www.ibiblio.org/ipa/

"The "Archive" features selected poems by major contemporary poets (Heaney, Levine, Pinsky etc). It is sponsored by the University of North Carolina Press and the UNC Office of Information Technology and it includes audio clips of the poets' readings and some commentary as well."

3. Poetry 180 - http://www.loc.gov/poetry/180/

"This site is "designed to make it easy for students to hear or read a poem each day of the 180 days of the school year." The poems, chosen by our current Poet Laureate Billy Collins, were all written in the last forty years, and many in the last five. They are meant to be listened to. The poems themselves are accessible and seem to share a kind of off-beat liveliness. Many are witty, some moving, and a few will raise the eyebrow of a principal or two."
