9 contest

Nein is German for no to that we agree
Maybe if you had said it you wouldn't  be
Pregnant, with time to stew over a babies name
Will it be Tanya or Zoe  or maybe William 
Up on cloud nine is where you will stay
All dressed up to the nines until that day
The baby arrives  I see smiles on your faces
All the anger, bad moods gone with no traces
What name have you chosen, no hints so far
You have named him Oscar he is your star

    These aren't nine lines, NEIN, lol. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I really wasn't trying to be critical, I actually liked this contest very much. I'm good at formed writing. I see you use a lot of near rhymes in your poetry, that truly is a gift. I of course have a rhyming dictionary, but never really use near rhymes, but I see the power in them. For me they draw extra attention to the lines. Nice poem, I'm giving you extra credit for the tenth line, lol, ok no more cracks I promise.

    I like how you just kind of took this from one thought to another, all tying together with the theme of nine. Awesome way to do the theme.

    This was a fun one, not sure if I should rate it a 9 or a 10! Good luck with the contest. p.s. the rating scale I am using is out of 10 so this is near perfect.
