Ene Mene ist Poesie

Every day a poem on the train, on hold or just in between. Participate in our transitory reading fun with the Ene Mene poetry collection.


Poems and short literature for iPhone, iPod touch, Android-OS, the Blackberry PlayBook, the Apple Watch and for listening with the language assistant Alexa.

You start Ene Mene and the poem of the day is immediately there. No searching and looking up. It starts with three poems. Then there is daily at 0:00 o'clock CET a new poem and at the same time the oldest of the three disappears. The poems are not stored and there will be no reference book on the device. Nevertheless it is not possible to miss poems, because the time between the app's starts does not add up.

In order to preserve the character of every single work of art from lines, verses and wraps, even if the available text width is limited, we have specially developed a wrapping method. If a line of poetry cannot be displayed in a single line of text, the rest of the line appears right-justified within the type area. When the mobile phone is lying horizontally, the font enlarges and uses the entire screen.

Listen to poems with a computer voice!?

With our Alexa Skill Ene Mene, Alexa reads every poem from our collection. Of course with an artificial voice and not comparable to a real recitation, but, all in all, not bad."Alexa say Ene Mene I would like to hear a poem by Maria Janitschek".
