Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on the theme of .............Back to Life.

As you all well know we have a lost quite a few of our fellow poetry soup poets over the years

this contest is more about the paying homage to those that have passed away  and their poetry., I think its a shame that many new members of our poetry community have not had a chance to read some of these great pieces.So with that in mind, with this contest, I'd like you to pick out a favorite poem of a poet who is no longer with us and enter it into this contest(which is not really a contest) Of course you need to copy their poem exactly how they've written it.

In the title please simply put The poets name ).(this isn't breaking P.S. rules as they ask that you not put your name) and after you've entered their poem. please either at the beginning or the end of the poem acknowledge

the poet who wrote the poem and the title of their poem. . It is o.k if we have multiple submissions from one poet.again this uncontest is about honoring the poems of poets who are no longer with us . Any questions please soupmail me..please no hate mail. My intentions are good


Any form is acceptable.
