Jugding this contest is really a hard task for me, that was why it took so long. </FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#800080>Judging Criteria</FONT>: <FONT color=#ff0000>I did not actually did everything on my own. The top ten winners chosen by myself tied. I was not able to distinguish the first place and so on, so I printed the ten out for people I know that are familiar with&nbsp;writing poems&nbsp;to vote. 15 people voted. according to the votes of the poem resulted to the result. I am so glad because the idea was great as I do not want to judge it blindly; as in choosing anyone [that would not be fair]. </FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#a9a9a9><FONT color=#ff0000>Thanks everyone for the entry.

    For some one so new to the site you have made your heart felt very fast! This was a very hard contest for any fragile, emotional person and aren't we all since we are poets? My verse never fails to make me cry. Sometimes I wish I never wrote it BUT I have it frozen in my head anyway so I thought it best to let it out. Perhaps as some kind reader said it would be a good one to read to "absentee" parents. I did read it to my father when I wrote it in my early 50's BUT it had NO affect on his future behavior. (sigh) Thank You Star

    Thank you so much, for choosing my poem, Northern Love, for 10th place. I feel very honoured and I am feeling the glory. It was an inspiring contest, and I am looking forward to more contests from you. And your idea of judging was a good, and fair one. It is never easy, to choose, the quality and talent on this site, is overwelming. And I congratulate all the other winners also. ... Constance

    You are so right, Starflixer, EVERYone is a winner. I am just thankful that your group of 15 liked mine enough to put it 4th. I can't wait to read all the other equally good winners!! Thanks for making this contest. It inspired much good writing from everyone who participated, and I like how you got help in judging. IF i ever do a contest, I might have to resort to your system as well since I have great difficulty in choosing favorites among myTOP favorites!! Luv, andrea
