Sadly I had to eliminate some wonderful poems which did not fall under the rhyme or free verse categories. Also thanks given to God received honorable mentions since they were excluded ( see rules ). My thanks to all who entered

 Contest Description


What to Submit?

1 new poem on the theme of thank-you
rhyme or free verse

Anyone who writes their name on the poem will be disqualified!

Please include the word thanks in your title so I don't accidentally read it

when it is posted.

The subject is quite simple..I want you to thank someone for something they have done for you in the last year ( must be a person, dogs and God are a given therefore excluded) you may or may not chose to name your benefactor, I leave that up to you. Looking forward to enjoying some excellent poetry!
