Competition Corner (3): Writelink Spring Fever

OVER TO YOU... (Spring is in the Air)

Along with a fair few others, I have entered a poem in the WriteLink 'Spring Fever' competition. The form in my case is a Rondeau Redoublé.

If we are members of forums or have our own blogs, we are encouraged to include a link to our poem (which also gives access to all the other contenders - so do look at these, too).

You will be able to cast a vote and/or leave a comment, if you would like to do so, up until the closing date of 21 March 2010. I suggest you do not use my name if you address a comment to me on the WriteLink site.

I am posting the link to my poem here. The organiser tells competitors that while 'lots of votes will get you on the Site Short List', the 'final judging will be by a human judge!'

The 10 poems with the most votes will be added to the judge's 10 favourites. The Top 20 poems will feature in an anthology. First, second and third prizes will be awarded by the judge. On behalf of those of us who are taking part, thank you very much for your interest and support!

P.S. For some wonderful definitions of poetry, you might like to follow this link. I wonder which works best for you...

P.P.S. Cathy of 'One Pink Goose' has a delightful puffin picture on her excellent site ... here. Don't miss it!

It's a lovely poem, Caroline, but sad too, to think of puffins declining as they are...

enjoyed your poem :)

Hi Caroline. Thanks for the comment and the link to your poem. I have left a comment. I really enjoyed it but worried about the decline of this beautiful bird.

Thanks also for the link to Andrew Waddington's gorgeously bright puffin picture. I only wish I could paint like that...haha.

Hi Caroline. Thanks for giving me the link to you. A lovely blog. For me I have chosen the quote 'poetry is linguistic music.' It says it all.
