But another feature that no doubt helped push the site to its Webby glory is the , which allows users to find poems by category, occasion, title, first line or glossary term, such as free verse, haiku or limerick. The tool lists 18 poems appropriate for Mother's Day, for instance, and 185 poems that begin with the letter "O." (It includes poems from the oft-recited "O Captain! My Captain!" to more modern pieces.) Users can also find poets by first name, last name or even year of birth.
