There is a winner to the "Who is it? quiz".  Nan Forehand, one of WC's poets.   A few hours later, Gynith Roberts, another WC poet, sent in the correct answer as well.  They will both receive poetic prizes.  Congratulatons!  The answer is Edith Agbo, a WC poet.

 

 

TAKE TIME TODAY


NO, NO DON'T ANOTHER SECOND DELAY
GET THAT PEN AND PAPER READY
OR THE KEYBOARD, HOLDING STEADY

NOW PUT YOUR POETRY MUSCLE TO WORK
THE MUSE IS ON VACATION, THE JERK
(ONLY KIDDING, MUSE, ENJOY YOURSELF)

BUT YOUR MIND IS PERFECTLY ABLE
JUST SIT AND START WRITING AT THE TABLE
PERHAPS A CUP OF JAVA IN HAND

THEN POST IT AT WC
THAT WILL BE FOR YOU AND ME
AND ALL INTERNET JUNKIES TO SEE

HEY, TAKE TIME TODAY!
