Click the link, poem number five is mine. They do cite me as the author but , are they using it to aid in selling what they offer?

My poem titled- Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree. Which has been published in a book.
Is clearly used-- but how much is it attached to the promoting of the selling of what they offer?

Here is the link as shown on Google...

Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree (by Robert J. Lindley) As I rest on this high mountaintop blessings come, they never stop All my family are blessings to me


The complete poem----


Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree


As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree

The clouds parting early each dawn
sunshine on flowers on the lawn
Looking closer I am content to see
smooth waves upon my family sea

Whenever this life sends some bad
I reflect on blessings I've had
Bow my head and settle in to pray
good Lord, thank you for every day

As my time for leaving comes near
I stand in faith not abject fear
Seeing my family in heaven my goal
praying God's mercy on every soul

As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree

In my opinion it is stealing if you didn't give permission.

I love the poem, Robert. Yes, it is stealing, although keep in mind that it is also official and in-print proof that it is an excellent poem, and that a lot of people love it. :clap:

Unless you gave that website or that owner some sort of permission - it is stealing your works. Are they making money with your poetry included? If not, I would look at it as a free way of getting your work and name out there. But if someone is profiting, then I would be pissed.
