**NOTE**Due to copyright laws, not all of the poem texts are included. Five of the texts are in the public domain, which means they are free to copy and use. Those five are included. The other five are NOT in the public domain, therefore it would be against the law for me to copy them and include them in a commercial product. However, the Common Core commission has the right to copy them, and several are available on other legal sites on the Internet. For these poems, texts are not included in this packet, but links are provided so you can use them. Then, you are free to copy and use them for classroom use, as long as it’s not for profit.
