Standing at the church awaiting his bride, ‘twas meant to be the best day of his life; When she arrives, she is not by his side. His bitter tears he can no longer hide, grieving for the one due to be his wife. Standing at the church awaiting his bride The coffin appears; her body inside, She couldn’t be saved; the cancer was rife. When she arrives, she is not by his side. Looking to heaven, he prays God will guide, giving him succour, at this time of strife. Standing at the church awaiting his bride, If she could see him she’d be full of pride; they will meet again in the afterlife. When she arrives, she is not by his side, In his memory she’ll always reside. his heart is broken; pain cuts like a knife. Standing at the church awaiting his bride; when she arrives, she is not by his side. Contest - Shadow Hamilton – Villanelle’s and Terzanelle’s Only My first attempt at Villanelle form 11th June 2105

First time I read it, I knew this would be a winner, and so it is! Congratulations! Judging is not at all easy, and I think a sponsor should be somebody born with a tough hide:) Also, contests should serve as part of a learning process for poets; thus reasons for NAs or a bad showing ought to be made available (in private). hugs // paul

I'm sorry, Jan, but this doesn't look like a first attempt at all. I'm going to have to smack your bottom with this Herring, for telling fibs. Well done anyway. Viv x

My only gripe is the names, uncalled for of which is my tuppence-worth. I also agree that poems can be recognised as written by certain poets, this is inevitable. Regarding anything else they do, I'll live with, and yes, many haven't sponsored, including me, but as members it's our liberty to speak our thoughts. My mind has ideas for a contest, just need to take the plunge, gulp! - hugs//James xx

I have given up even the thought of placing in contests at the moment James sadly with the recent blogs it has become a pantomime and I wouldn't blame people for not bothering to sponsor contests - too much criticism from people who have never tried to sponsor a contest:-( hugs Jan xx

Jan this is a beautiful touching Villanelle. I'd say you knocked this one out of the ball park on the first swing. Had tears in my eyes. Loved it! A 7 and Fave.

Jan, I have to admit "here comes the bride" I was all set for something naughty! Now let there be no doubt, none what so ever, this is a masterpiece of poetry, you brought me to tears, and this is, well this poem is so classically brilliant. If this was my contest and I read this, I would just tell everyone else go home, You my lady are a poet extraordinaire!!! A7
