Poems

We have curated a selection of permissions-cleared poems for you to share based on our theme, which we will be adding to in the lead up to National Poetry Day. If you have any suggestions for poems in the public domain that you would like to see featured, please get in touch.

We also have 2020’s list of recommended poetry books from some of our partner publishers, which features some of the best contemporary poetry available in the UK. We have a wealth of education resources for any age-group which explore all manner of poems, and give a chance to try and write your own.

Remember: protecting the voices, work, and livelihoods of poets is near and dear to our hearts. Learn about copyright via our partners at the Author’s Licensing and Collecting Society. They have lessons here on copyright you can use with your students, writing groups, or library patrons.
