AYYYYEEE!!!

 

So, my second contest shall commence. 

 

For this contest, I decided to give you all a break. Instead of having to spend you precious time coming up with a thrilling story or a romantic poem, all you have to do is.....*DRUMROLL* write two lines. A couplet.

 

For those who aren't quite sure what this is, let me explain: two lines of verse, usually in the same meter and joined by rhyme, that form a unit.

 

Here's a few examples!

Blessed are you whose worthiness gives scope,/Being had, to triumph; being lacked, to hope. 

Tis education forms the common mind,/Just as the twig is bent, the tree’s inclined.

 

Sha-bam. Sooooooooo yeah. Write a two line poem pretty much. Generally they should rhym but I won't nessecarily take away points if it doesn't! It all depends...

 

So, here are the rules:

(1) Must be original

(2) Must be entered by July 2nd

 

Your couplet can be funny, romantic, intelligent, depressing, etc, etc! Go for whatever! Comment to let me know you're in, and I'll respond simply to let you know I saw it. Comment with a link to your couplet once you've done it.

 

I will judge them by July the 7th. Results will be posted on this page.

 

Grading:

30 - Grammar

30 - How much I enjoy it

30 - Meaning

 

There will be a first, second, and third place. The rewards will be simple. 

1st - I will fan you if we aren't fans. I will feature you for 3 months with your couplet on my profile.

2nd - I will fan you if we aren't fans. I will feature you for 2 months with your couplet on my profile.

3rd - I will fan you if we aren't fans. I will feature you for 1 month with your couplet on my profile.

 

I will have 20 entries for this one! Take them before they're gone!

RESULTS ARE IN! First of all, you all did great! I know it was probably tricky and all, couplets tend to be tricky! Luckily, most of you got it, and a lot of you seemed to have a lot of fun with it! It was har to judge, but I finally got it down to the top three! 

FIRST PLACE: messian101

SECOND PLACE: thechronicler
