What to Submit?
1 original, poem to include the word "Purple"
Your rhyme poem must be no longer than 8 lines
In my first contest 8 entries were of lines that of well over 8 lines and as good as they were, I could not judge them. This also precluded others who may have wanted to enter. Cheers
Can be about anything you want as long as it contains the word "Purple" at least once. New poems dated on or after 15.1.19, kind regards to all. Please include Purple somewhere in your title so i don't accidentally read beforehand.
