From A.F., in rebuttal of the amazing sonnet posted days ago, comes this vaguely menacing entry:
A sonnet this ain't,
and I'm no Gaelic expert.
Hand over the shawl.
There are several other gems worth sharing. Here are just a few.
From a self-described "cougar" - H.R.:
The Straight Male Knitter created a beautiful shawl.
Its a hand-made, one-of-a-kind piece you can't buy in a mall.
He said the colors of the yarn made him want to barf.
But if you ask me it is a very good looking scarf.
I would wear it this spring when there is a little cold in the air,
and I'm sure as I pass all the people will stare.
In the ending of this poem, I have one simple request:
please consider me when choosing the winner of the contest.
From N.M. in The Netherlands:
To faraway lands
free Bitterroot will travel.
Postage will be paid.
and from J.B., who apologizes that she doesn't remember the rules for haiku:
The Straight Male Knitter once made a shawl,
but with the results he was less than enthralled.
The colors so pretty,
to me its not shitty,
its the most beautiful shawl of them all.
Keep those entries coming. There are only 13 days left until the decision.
