This policy established 1 June 2009.
This website exists solely for the purpose of making the general public aware of the pleasures of poetry. It is sustained through the underwriting and generosity of a few, the artistic and technological talents of a few more, whatever advertising or sponsorships can be appropriately but not gratuitously used, and a few gracious poetry lovers who are kind enough to support the cause. Poems featured here are selected at random simply because the owner of the site likes them. While featured poems may reflect the influence of the owner's background, occupation, religious or political affiliation, or personal experiences, the owner receives no compensation in exchange for promoting or featuring a particular poem or book. The views and opinions expressed here are purely that of the site owner and the owner reserves the right to publish or not publish any comments made in response to featured content.
Periodic contests may be held in an effort to generate new material or poems on specific themes, and to provide funding for site expenses and/or contest awards and honorariums. Contest rules and deadlines will be clearly displayed.
The purpose of Your Daily Poem is to celebrate, explore, and bring attention to deserving poets and poetry. Every effort is made to determine and honor copyrights and to give full authorship and publication credit. If you find erroneous information on this site, please contact us so it can be corrected. If you are the author or publisher of a poem shared here and feel that your copyright has been violated in any way, please contact us immediately. Our intent is to make visitors to Your Daily Poem aware of the joy and diversity of poetry, not to infringe upon anyone's copyright.
