Well, if anyone deserves special attention for his many poems of the day, my vote certainly goes to the man who has served as town crier for all of those who've had their poems chosen... Sir Tom Cunningham.

I think the boy from Sams blog was on to something when he said we should do a blog for people when they get POTD

Well said Mark, not everyone looks at the POTD and POTW poems. Tom is such an asset to PS, always the first to congratulate on POTD and his poetry is informative and very well written especially his historical poems and of course his limericks are fab:-) hugs jan xx
