Why, yes. Yes there is. There is selling the poem again, which is what has happened with my poem, "A Place to Share", found in the marvelous and award-winning anthology, Dare to Dream . . . Change the World, edited by Jill Corcoran.

I was thrilled when the poem was accepted for publication, and thrilled again when an educational publisher from Canada contacted me and asked my permission to reprint the poem as part of a fourth-grade curriculum for reluctant readers. It will be used in their online curriculum (and the sample I saw for an older grade was splendiferous indeed!), and in text if they opt to print it.

I was happy, of course, to get paid for the poem again, but happier still to think that thousands of Canadian school kids will get to read my poem. (I just hope it isn't a painful experience for them.)

I don't know about "awesome", but I do feel pretty lucky. It was one of those things I knew was possible in this world, but I was shocked when it happened to me!!

It's one of those things that dwells in the realm of possibility, but I never dreamed it would happen to one of my poems, especially with so few in print!
