Finding Evidence that Someone Found Use for One of my Poems

So, I was doing some vanity surfing on Google and I found a link to a Student Paper written about a "Unit of Study" on "Baseball: The Game of Life". The paper describes a unit of study the author is proposing for younger students. In his paper, he refers to a poem I wrote about baseball: "The Perfect Life". Made my day!
I am not sure what grade he got or if the paper was approved or not, but it was neat seeing the quote; "To begin the extension to the unit, I would like to share an inspiring poem by a modern poet named Joe Flach."
Pretty cool to see someone found use for one of my poems
. Almost made me cry.
Having just one stranger, somehow find just one poem I wrote and putting it to use, makes the agony of having 1,000 other poems go unnoticed, somehow vanish. I am a lucky man!
Today, for the first time in my life
, having stumbled upon this link, I actually feel like a poet.
Thanks, stranger. I hope it all worked out for you. You made my day!UPDATE
: I also found this link ( http://mwholocaustproject.weebly.com/poetry.html ) that includes one of my poems and some poems from others that I know who post here on PS. Cool.
