In first place, by a landslide, is Marguerite! How kind of you to make me the subject. I'm blushing.
Here's her award-winning entry.
Come, children, I’ll tell you a story
Of a magical hero named Laurie
She saves kittens’ lives
by the threes, fours and fives
without ever accepting the glory
It is told throughout the whole land
how they thrive with a touch of her hand
(Or she brings in Charlene,
the Esteemed Butterbean,
and those kitties will grow on command!)
So let’s all raise a glass of Bourdeaux
To the incredible Laurie Cinotto!
I have many more raves
For the kittens she saves,
I think I have run out of rhymes, though.
And in second place, this charming piece by Wendy
There once was a kitty so wise,
A nanny in soft fur disguise.
A paw she would lend ,
For sweet kittens to tend,
And watch with her pretty crossed eyes.
Third prize goes to Lynn for her wonderful limerick.
In a little red basket they sit
Warm and cozy they certainly get
Little kittens will stuff
Every ounce of their fluff
It’s a wonder that everyone fits
Nice work, everyone. Thank's to all who submitted, and everyone who voted too.
To our winners, I will be contacting you shortly, and we'll work out the arrangements for your prizes.
That was fun, wasn't it? We'll have to do it again!
