"[Romance is] a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. . . . love, especially when sentimental or idealized."- Google.
I might not consider poems without the theme #romantic. Poems will be commented on by me and other contestants. If you want comments, then put your poem webpage's full url link (or just the 6 digits that are within that url) at the bottom of your posts.
Submit any poem, even if it was written beforehand, commented on by me or in a previous contest. submit 3 poems maximum, but no duplicate entries. Don't add or edit posts, after the contest has closed. Your poem can't solely be an image, audio, or video; but must have some accessible text that wholly represents it.
Message me with any concern, including of integrity or of rule violations.
Here's some inspiration:
There was a maid's plate of each berry
which peeked through the clouds with a cherry;
now sir Summer did prance,
serve her supper with dance,
to balance that plate of each berry.
There was a sir Winter of ponds
who froze them to symbol his bonds;
with this maid, he would skate,
but much to his weight,
would crash through those same freezing ponds.
Spring's lake blossoms fertile dirt by such faces
whom Summer's hydrangeas skirt by such faces.
Why does Winter's snow greet rosed skin with tickles,
as flakes caress 'neath covert by such faces?
When brothers trade each one's blood 'fore a wife; ribs
melt piece by piece, with such hurt by such faces!
A nursing left hand mends frostbitten wounds
till iced lips praise and flirt, "By such faces!"
To kiss Spring's right palm, Summer suffers Winter-
Earth, they Will always concert; by such faces.
