    Exclamation RESULTS: St. William's Valentine's Day Poetry Contest

    NOTE: The Contest Thread is now updated with the authors credited for their work.

    Hi all:

    Thank you all for sharing your work. The entries are well-written, and there are examples of a lot of formal styles, but there's also some interesting experimentation, some profound turns-of-phrase and a great deal of genuine emotion, expressed with respect for the reader and a sense of pride and discipline in one's work.

    You should all be proud.

    However, we had a lot of entries and not a whole lot of votes, so unfortunately some entries did not receive any votes. These are listed below as Honorable Mentions. A cynic would say that's just a nice way of saying you got no votes, but I mean it when I say there are no losers. The very act of writing it made you a better writer, whether you realize it or not.

    So, with that, let's go to the results.

    Congratulations to our Winner with 6 Votes:
