Death’s dark mistress
Standing tall cloaked in black
Proudly gazes grave monuments
Scattered like discarded bygone trophies
Unnamed menagerie of dead
Waiting to enter realm
With dark temptress

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Caryl. Love, Carol

    A rictameter proves to be an effective way to convey descriptiveness without writing a long poem. Congratulations on winning in Constance's contest with this fine entry, Caryl.

    This is very well written to evoke a somewhat "spooky" feeling as the Raven prepares to enter the "menagerie of dead." Excellent entry for Constance's contest, Caryl. Wishing you success! Love, Carolyn
