The random poem generator automatically creates randomly generated computer poetry. Choose a poem structure such as haiku, quinzaine or tanka from the dropdown, then choose an optional poetry theme, or just leave blank to generate a totally random poem.
The poem generator works by randomly selecting from hundreds of lines of poetry of different syllable lengths to generate a short structured poem. The poem generator currently generates haikus, tankas, lanturnes, nonets, quinzaines, katautas, sedokas, and clarity pyramids.
I've written the poem generator so that you can create as many new poems as you like. Because the poem generator is random, some of the poems turn out well, and others not so well! Try generating a few different types of poems using different themes, or a mix of themes.
