Someone has just published one of poems on their blog.
My Last Poem about Snow has appeared at Ink Stained Fingers.
Now don't get me wrong: the poem is correctly credited to me, and the source is quoted. It isn't a case of plagiarism. I'm very happy for Anna to use my poem. But why did she not seek my permission first? I could understand if there was no contact reference given or an out-of-date link, but the site where she saw my poem has a visible link to my contact page.
It is only by chance that I discovered her use of the poem. I just wish she'd told me herself and sooner.
Update: February 20th: It appears that rather than contact me and apologise for the oversight, the blogger has pulled the page from her blog. I wasn't asking her not to use the poem, but...
Anyhow the poem can be viewed on the Unlikely Stories website.
