How Pleasant To Know Poem by Unnikrishnan Sivasankara Menon

How Pleasant To Know

The entry for the contest by Poet Jayne Louise Davis was posted on the 21st January, as PoemHunter records show. Within the deadline fixed by Kim. Though, we were able to detect it only now. So, I take it as eligible entry. I searched for it through the last night. Except for the comments by Kim and Belle, I wouldn't have found it. Thanks to all. Thus there are five entries: that of
1) Kim Barney
2) Cowboy Ron Williams
3) Bri Edwards
4) Belle Wassermeister
5) Jayne Louise Davies

I tried to rank the five entries in Poetic quality, Rhyme Scheme and humour. Although the contest was not officially for Limericks (and that is why adherence to meter is not considered mandatory) , I settle for the humour integral to this form of poetry.

Based on these parameters, in my wisdom, the poem by Kim Barney stands tall and apart from others. The poem by Belle Wassermeister comes a close second.



I had posted a rejoinder to the post by Cowboy Ron Williams here. But it has vanished. Can PoemHunter help us?

Congratulations to Kim and Belle for placing first and second. Also congrats to all who entered. It was fun. Let's do it again sometime.

This time round, I could not join the contest, because Kim betrayed me by asking me to be the moderator. Next time round, I shall have you all run for your money…😃😀
