  1. HI

    I am planning the power of imagery topic using the hamilton plans and am looking for the poem Words Behaving Badly by Sue Cowling.

    I am aware that its in a book but I'm really trying to stop spending my hard earned cash?

    IF anyone could let me know Id be grateful.

    Words Behaving Badly -Sue Cowling
    Words
    Develop nasty habits-
    Getting out of order,
    GOind off at tangents,
    Breaking rules,
    Attention seeking.
    Give them fifty lines.
    They take delight
    In ambushing the reader,
    Going round in gangs
    With their unsuitable friends
    Imagining they're poems!
    Words-
    I'd keep an eye on them
    If I were you.

    Is "by permission of the author" for printing it in The Works 4, or for posting it on a public forum?

    (Once you know what book it's in, always worth trying your local library.)

    I imagine "by permission of the author" is for it to be included in the book, and I'm pretty sure that these few words are well within the amount you're amount to quote freely from a book.
