Sister, Sister Love Premiere Contest Winner

I can still recall her sweet laughter as we played, with our dolls on the covered porch in the shade, I keep it in my soul. And how we walked with Dad holding hands to the park, and sat and talked listening to a meadowlark, our sister love death stole. My small girl mind wept that God took you to heaven, and I have for years, years- for you were just seven, and I cannot be whole. ___________________________ July 31, 2020 Poetry/Tail-Rhyme/Sister, Sister Love Copyright Protected, ID 20-1272-752-0 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, Tail Rhyme Stanza sponsor, Emile Pinet First Place

Congrats! This made me nostalgic ... I lost a dear first cousin I considered my younger sister then... (I was 8; she was 7). God bless you.

You write tenderly of a love and tragedy that one can never fully get over. This touches me deeply as each of my parents lost a young brother, one was 5, one was 9. Warm hugs and congrats for a top podium win with your touching tail-rhyme ~ John

Congratulations Constance! Your amazing poem "Sister, Sister Love ", has placed "First" in my contest. You should take pride, for it was a difficult contest to judge and I was very strict, but your poem rose to the top of the list. Very well done my friend, Emile.

According to last night's news, children carry 100x Novel Coronavirus as adults, so many more tears will be shed. Good luck in the contest! Aloha! Rico
