I have about twenty other poets I wanted to add to this poem. You know who you are. I would list your names but then there would be one or two poets who would feel badly they were left out, so I will not. The problem is - I was  limited to 22 lines. I wanted to add more but I was LIMITED, so I want you to know I love you all, and  appreciate your support and wish I could have added all of you.  There simply was no room. If you had a short name you were more likely to make the cut. Which reminds me. I might be able to sneak in one more name if it is SHORT enough.  

First Annual Poetry Soup Convention shall be held on June 21st at Stonehenge
For Nina’s convenience and to entice Jan, Melani, Brandy, Heidi and Anne-Lise.
M.L., Rhona, Brian, Joseph, and Emile will build the fire, and bring magic.
Jennifer, Michelle, Aditi, Carolyn, Lu and Panagiota will laugh into the night.

Victor, Demetrios, Andrew, Gershon and Chris will build their own cabins.
Mahtab, Brenda and Jim will help construct them, but will refuse any credit.
Directors Line, Eve, Connie, P.S, Ann and Irene will be assigning bunk mates.
Sarah, Sherry and Anisha will create food using M.L.’s epulaeryus for recipes.

Andrea, Gregory, and Kim will be teaching "how to win"  poetry workshops.
Peter, Vera and Freddie will bringing along cockatoos to entertain us at night.
Tom will be down the hill re-enacting war stories with a bunch of the fellows.
Maureen will be teaching senyrus.  Beata will be holding Bible sessions.

Nette will be coordinating with Susan, Robert, and Teppo to recreate the moon.
Sandra and Maurice will be sneaking onto computers to do their own thing. 
Jack and James will arrive without James’ special pal, who is at Mar-a-Largo. 
Bobby and Wren will make banners. Everyone will be hugging Line for the idea.

Constance, Sherry and M.L. will bring their cats, who will go from lap to lap.
Charles and Carol will be rich by the end of the night from their cut of the money from Chantelle and Tania's workshops.  Arturo will be Grand Marshall.
Winged Warrior, Pixie Dust and Silent One will reveal they have regular names.
 
We will have so much fun, we will have to do it again next year in Kansas City.
Where Caren can put up all the tents. She does not sleep anyway.

I had to keep adding names, until it was too many lines, and I had to start WHITTLING it down. That was tough!

Yes, haven't we all made so many friends here, so touching how you put our names in the poem, congratulations on your win, Caren!

Thank you Tom, I had so much fun trying to slide in six more names, five more names, two more names....

Thank you Line. I was loving the "doing of this one". I re-wrote it 19 times before I stopped counting.

The picture you see of me was when we were taking a trip to Stonehenge. A truly astounding place.

I understand Jan. I can only go in the summer; I wish everyone would "get this".

Thank you my Soul Sister. I had to really smash in some; shorter names were much easier, for thanks for not being named Yowanda!

Hi, I was just reading some poems from the new list and thought how few views there was. On Stonehenge, hardly be room, that’s the day the weirdos all turn up, on the other hand, we should fit in well lol. Take care, Richard

I am one of the Weirdos apparently, because I really want that particular day, Summer Solstice. I refuse to change it; it is my dream to see it on that day. Thank you for the stop by Richard.

Oh my goodness you can tell it’s a quiet night here when no-one comments on THIS! Or maybe they’re just annoyed at coming all the way to Wiltshire lol (not that coming to Wiltshire should annoy anyone!) Awesome Caren! Any latecomers can pitch tents in my garden - I make good pavlova. Poets love pavlova as the great... er... me once said. :oD

Thank you Nina. I kept thinking "not a single comment?" I have thought it all day. It does seem weird. It was not just me then. HOORAY! I am glad you noticed I put a lot of time in this one - rewriting it about 18 times in a three hour period last night, trying to figure out how to add in a few more names....
