Clarifying my contest...
Blog Posted:2/7/2013 12:01:00 PM
Hello Soupers I gather from your questions and comments some of you are finding my contest very difficult, ( it was meant to be ) so this is to clarify it, (hopefully)
The first word of your poem must start with a consonant and the last word must start with a vowel. If a line in your poem ends with a vowel then the start of your next line must be a consonant and vice verse, so from the start it will be consonant then vowel then consonant then vowel and so on until the end of your poem which must be a vowel.
Your title is to be only two words starting with a consonant then vowel.
13 lines in total no more or less and a minimum of six words per line.
There are quite a few entrees already but 5 of them are wrong, so if you have already entered could you please go back and re-read very slowly as I do not want to lose a great poem because the sequence is incorrect. Sometimes we read and read and still miss the obvious so if you are friends with someone ask them to look at your poem. If anyone wants to soup me and ask if their poem is correct or wrong I will gladly do it but I will not tell you what your mistake is if you have made one, ( I think that's fair ) and obviously I will not comment on your poem until after judging. I hope this helps but soup me if you are still unsure.
