    Weekly Poetry Contest (101) Voting - Celebrations

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jan 4, 2010.

    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence! I know this is very delayed, but I was very ill just before Christmas, and then there was the chaos of the holiday period... Anyway, here we go.

    This week's theme is: Celebrations

    Voting will end on Thursday 7th January 2010.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.


    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.



    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    The merriment of sounds and sight
    By Calrootpeg


    The merriment of sounds and sight;
    not by ears and eyes,
    nor captured by prose or paint,
    within,
    feeling,
    the celebration begins
    when pain goes away.

    WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
    By Palmer


    “Oh boy! It's Christmas Eve!” said little Susan with delight
    “Oh joy, it’s Christmas Eve.” muttered grumpy old Steve​

    She ran around and hurried down
    He groaned a sound and made a frown​

    As she lit her tree all bright
    Still in bed, he didn’t leave​

    “I wonder what I got this year?”
    “Why is it that each year!?”​

    She giggled with a smile
    His yell was heard from miles​

    “A remote control, a trip to the pole, or maybe it’s a reindeer?”
    “A block of coal that someone stole; now isn’t that queer!”​

    “What’s in the box and all it contains?”
    “Why not a rock, or bad Champagne?” ​

    She kept on guessing, curious
    His voice kept getting furious​

    “Whatever it is, or whoever it’s from, I really won’t complain!”
    “Whoever you are, or wherever you’re from, you’re driving me insane!”​

    Inside the box was a choo choo train:
    Inside the box was a yellow plane:​

    “Here’s your wish my little Steve.
    “Here’s your gift my dearest Susan!”​

    I sent you coal, but coal from a train, and I hope that you’d receive this.”
    You’ll reach your goal, you’ll fly to Spain, and your journey’s just begun!”

    She looked at the date, and there it read:
    He looked at the date, and there it read:​

    “Nineteen forty-nine”
    “Two-thousand and nine”​

    She let out a sigh and told herself
    Thinking of retiring, he thought​

    “Well I guess it isn’t mine!”
    “I guess Spain should be fine!”​
