~~~Love Without Hope~~~ Finished Judging

Blog Posted:4/1/2016 7:47:00 AM

Thanks to each person who participated in my contest.

I had some good works which deserved to receive to be read again by many people so I tried to place all who at least tried to write one in some form with rhyme, and only one stanza.

Each four lines of Emily Dickinson's poem is called a stanza. There are some forms that four lines are a stanza, some five lines are a stanza, some 6 lines are a stanza, etc. Sara
