  1. So sorry, but I am terrible at poetry writing.;) But good luck finding participants.;)

  2. Six is a respectable start. More would be better though.

  3. it may be a language thing but for the life of me i can't put together anything that is supposed to rhyme

  4. I'll be anxious to see them all :)

  5. If I get time, I will try something!

  6. If only I knew how to rhyme.
    If only I could find the time.
    And if I had something to say,
    I'd enter your poetry play.

    Since I don't, I'm leaving real quick.
    What rhymes with Limerick?

  7. I am hopelessly limerick impaired, but what a fun idea for a contest!
