Garden Intrigue Contest #2: Poetry!
Tragedy! In the midst of his latest ode, Augustus Whittlesby has broken his quill. For some strange reason, no one appears willing to lend him another.
Will you help a pen-less poet? Your task, should you choose to accept it, is this: write a few lines of verse for Augustus.
Your verses can be on any topic you like (pink carnations, the Pink Carnation series, short dictators, root vegetables), any style, and any length. Go wherever the muse takes you– provided that the muse is amusing.
All entries are due by Tuesday, October 11. For the fun of having a grand unveiling, please email your entries to me, rather than posting them in the Comments section. I’ll post all the entries here on October 12th and open it up to general voting, with the winner to be announced on Wednesday, October 19th. The winner, two runners-up, and one judge chosen at random will all receive advance copies of The Garden Intrigue, featuring none other than Augustus himself.
Awesome! And so on point! Thanks for the contest! Hopefully my muse will come down and strike me on the head this weekend …
Can we do more than one if our muses so strike us?
Roses are Red, Violets are blue
If Augustus Whittlesby can write poetry
So can you.
Okay serious submission to be sent in later. 😉
Ooh, I can’t wait to see the entries for this one. So fun!
Alex, indeed you may!
Nancy, with your permission, I’m including your un-serious one, too! I love it.
This should be super fun!
@Nancy… that really wasn’t a serious submission? Because it definitely motivated me! 🙂
Sure feel free to include my silliness.
FINALLY! Something I’m good at: bad poetry.
was planted in the garden
what is its true nature
Over the sea
There is a carnation
In a mask
It is the flower of chivalry (/heroism)
I’ll do my best to come up with some nice poetry, but English not being my mothertongue, it might be a bit difficult… But I’ll give it a try!
Oops! Didn’t read that I was supposed to email these to you. *sigh* Maybe I’ll have to come up with a sonnet or something too to make up for the fact that I apparently can’t read.
Oh Lauren please use Ashleigh’s already submissions. I think its magnificient that she was able to write in Chinnese or Japanese? Anyways she’s awesome. Please include it in the contest.
I sent in my “serious” poem. I want to make sure I got the email address right.
Don’t worry, Nancy– it made it to me safe and sound!
I want to buy the graphic pink novel. when is that going to happen?
