Hello Soupers, many thanks to all who entered, going by some comments it wasn't as easy as some thought. 

My congratulations go to all of the winners, and my commiseration's go to those who entered, but for one reason or another fell a little short, some poems only had three or four words per line, others repeated some words far too often and others had one word that had two syllables, then there were the ones that nothing to do with the contest.

There were many outstanding poems, it was very difficult choosing just ten winners so I decided on a few HM's as well as they deserved it.

Once again Thank You all....

I remember when I first saw your contest and thinking "WHAT??? I didn't think I would be able to come up with something using only one syllable words, at least not something I would be happy with. thanks so much for having this contest because I enjoyed it and knowing you liked it makes me feel I did ok! congrats to all. I look forward to seeing your winners.

Thanks for this fun and interesting challenge. Enjoyed it, and appreciate the honor, and it was fun to try our hand at one syllable words! Congratulations to all your winners! Thanks again, David!!

Thank you for challenging us to think outside the box (not just concentrate on rhyme and meter), David. Thank you for my placement. Congratulations to all the winners and HM. Love, Su
