"Grapestompers"-That is what some people call Italian girls. This is a good write and I see Nette liked it so much, she picked it number one in her contest. Congratulations!

GLEN!!... thanks for entering my contest...just a sweet reminder: Sijo hasthree long lines. Each line varies between 14 and 16 syllables, with the middle line often the longest. The first line states a theme, the second line counters it, and the third line resolves the poem... so much potential here; perhaps we may want to check syll count.. will you??? salamat!.. :) huggs!
