Here are the poems that were submitted in the Poetry Challenge. As I said in my other post, they all were tied, but I wanted to share them with you. I’ll go ahead and include mine, which wasn’t up for voting, but just because I can. 🙂 Thanks to Eunice and Maggie for your wonderful poems! 🙂

What a lovely thing it would be
To have a fountain that’s made of candy
Colorful sprinkles of pure sweet delight
Delicious to taste and a beautiful sight
But fountains are known for their sweet soothing sound
A candy one might jingle, clatter, and pound
You’d have to decide if it’s worth all the din
In my own opinion, it might do me in.

It stands in the center of the room
It has Chocolate cascading down from the top.
We fill our plate with goodies, to coat in this melted delight.
I can tell by all the faces in line, they hope this NEVER stops.
While the Candy Fountain flows, everyone is having such fun.
Can it really be all that melted Chocolate that has everyone wanting some
Seems it doesn’t take much to make us forget our woes
Just a Candy Fountain, with melted Chocolate, to make us smile from our
lips to our toes.
A candy fountain? Really? That’s a joke.
You must be kidding. Would an English bloke
believe there’s such a fancy thing? Would Queen
Elizabeth find tastes of candy keen?
Come now. You’re toying with reality.
Those minty drops and chocolate rivers, free
to me? I couldn’t help but to indulge…
but I’d best be prepared. They’d make me bulge!
Ethereal asparagus exists
in abstract paintings or on artists’ lists
of fresh ideas. I have painted all
I know, and need now an original
new thought. Asparagus upon a back-
ground purple, turquoise-blue, and black –
Aha, that’s it. My fellow artists would
not think asparagus could taste this good.
