    I had wanted to enter the contest sooner, but saw that you said poems shouldn't be longer than 14 lines, I have found my way with the villanelle which is 19 lines. I saw days that no one else had enterred so I decided to go ahead and throw mine in there, because I was very interested in the contest.

    Good morning, Dr. Mehta ! So nice to see you back. Sorry to say, I was not so patient during your Quatern contest, I thought you had slipped away for good, so I removed mine from the contest. Although, it was an enjoyable experience writing for your contest. Congratulations to all your winners. hugs, Catie :)
