HELLO POETRY is a user-friendly and uncluttered website. It is easy to comment and message other poets. It’s a sort of lyrical Facebook without the bells and whistles. They provide a count of how many views a poem gets over time. One never knows if these stats are truthful, or just algorithmic hype, but accepting the bean counters at face value, here are my ten most-read poems since I began posting at the site in 2015. They range, top to bottom (if one believes the stats), from 40K+ views down to 9K+ views.
John Greenleaf Whittier’s Snow-bound (1865) comes in at number one with 43K views.
