This is a new idea I'm testing - these are original poems written by me to be used freely in a classroom or in products for education. They can be reproduced in their entirety, modified, etc. Most modern poetry is protected with copyright against many uses in the classroom, so I have been writing my own to avoid problems. I figured other teachers may find them useful too!
This is a poem similar in structure and style to "If" by Rudyard Kipling, but with a more modern flair and designed for use in the classroom.
I’ve included a text only version, an old fashioned version in jpg format and a transparent blue colored png version.
Poems and accompanying are licensed for any personal use and for commercial use in any educational product (or marketing materials for educational products). Credit is appreciated but not required. All images are copyright to me and are created by me and are not to be onsold or given away as just poetry or clip art - if they're adding to your work that you are selling that's great, but you are not permitted to sell or distribute them as poems or images or on their own. You are not permitted to create derivative works from them and sell them as images, but you may change them for use in your personal or educational commercial products (worksheets, units, etc.).
Rating after downloading is very appreciated. If these prove popular I have many more I can upload.
