Thanks to all those who entered this contest. We had an incredible 19 entries! Voting is now open for Poetry Contest #244. The poll will close on Saturday, June 7. For your convenience, I'm going to post the poems in this thread. Please read them all before voting. Because there are multiple poems with the same title, I'm going to add a number (e.g., "(1)") after the title. Please note that these numbers aren't part of the actual title; they're simply there for clarity and to make voting easier. Also, for consistency, I'm going to put all poem titles in quotes because that's the correct format. So poem titles will no longer be bolded or underlined (this only applies to some of the entries). If you intentionally bolded or underlined the title of your poem because it affects how people read the poem, please let me know and I'll change it back. Everything else (capitalization, spelling, etc.) will be left as it is. Good luck to all who have entered!
