Must it be for Contest

must it be for contest prompt to make you read my lines?
must I play up to the theme so that you'll take the time?
must I spend inordinate time to visit everyone?
must it be that what you read are poems that have won?

Won't you come and visit me, and read a rhyme or two?
Leave a little comment there and say, "How do you do?"
Won't you read these simple words for love of poetry?
Won't you come and spend some time with silly little me?

    These are very meaningful words, Eileen. It's alright to congratulate winners, but visiting for the pure pleasure of enjoying a writer's poems is a totally different cup of tea! Have a lovely day...hugs // paul

    I can relate, with having less time of late available at the soup, I receive far less comments on my poems. I think sometimes out of sight out of mind. I will continue to read old or new if time does not permit you to write. Hugs Rick

    What a treasure. I haven't posted for some time (but now a few) and just remembered your face having shown up on my page. So it's more from gratitude and not because of a contest. I'm glad I did and gained sweet reward. It's very well done with enticing rhyme.

    I honestly don't pay a lot of attention to contests and mostly enter them when I already have something written that I think would be fitting (but the challenge is fun). I come because I enjoy reading what you have to say. You have a heart and mind in there and the rhymes are just bonuses ;)

    Do you really think people only read poems for contests? I have always thought it was the other way around.. but, what do I know... I read poems regardless and normally, prefer the non contest ones.. I think poets are more natural with their poetry when it is not for contests..

    You got it Sweetheart....I try to keep up with the poets/poetry but fall way to short in my indeavours.

    I would rather read poems not for contests. How do you do Eileen?

    LOL this made me smile Eileen - I do try and write poems for fun and for the contests ... but I endeavour to read and comment as widely as I can on new poems and not just on contest wins :-) hugs Jan xx
