Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on the theme of and entitled

"As I was walking in the Snow"

doesn't have to be those exact words, but can be if you so wish
It must be a Limerick and as such have only 5 lines

Line 1, 2 & 5 - 7-10 syllables

Line 3 & 4 - 5-7 syllables

Please read my Limerick

entitled In the Snow

which is a bit of Black Comedy.

I do enjoy these contests but must admit to slight frustration,

when fellow poets don't adhere to the rules. As an example in my last contest

A poem for a 7 year old, I asked for a maximum of 8 lines, i had one entry with

24 lines and another with 42 lines. Whilst these poems I am sure had merit, I did'nt read them as they couldn't be considered as winners.

There we go, rant over, have fun with the contest
