    Dr Ram, I have noticed three different ways folks are writing their Tyburn poems. Mine is written according to Poetry soup's instructions. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines as the 5th to 8th syllables. The first word rhyme starts as the fifth syllable ito the sixth, the second word doesn't necessarly start with the eight syllable, but incoroporates through the eight, according to soup's example. I think I am reading this right. Agape, Moses

    Enjoy your vacation, Dr. Ram. This is one of my favorite spots and my wife and I have talked about retiring there or in Conway, a small town a few miles inland. Great family vacation area. God Bless. Have fun. Vince

    I'm sure there will be internet access at that motel, Dr. Ram. I can't see you going a day without it! (that's how I am anyway when I travel). YOu get around a lot!! First the hills and then the beach! Good luck with your judging. That was sure a difficult form to do! It is VERY specific!
