Contest Description

"One by one, row after row,

Up and up the pine-trees go,

So, like black priests up, and so

Down the other side again

To another greater, wilder country."


The above is an extract from "The Flight of the Duchess" by Robert Browning.

One original poem in FREE VERSE on the theme of a wild country (in the strict sense of its vegetation and/or wild animals).

My example for you is called "Solitude in a Wild Country" and is dated 3/20/2020.
