Even Don Quixote, builder of sand castles, would not have the daring to fight off such a wave. This be very dramatic. Liking it mucho. Love Dave

Hi Andrea, got an email from Dr. Ram. The poem does need to be about a wreath and must be eight lines with repeating words. There is no form called "wreath," that's just the title of his contest. I changed my poem (painful because I had to eliminate the details of the ornaments' origins and I don't think it's as meaningful now, but it does fit his requirements). Have a great weekend! Love, Carolyn
