    Okay… well, my LA teacher tends to forget stuff, but I will try anyway! 🙂 Thank you Yousei Hime! You’re a very nice person!

    Just dropping by Yousei…:)

    Thanks for your kind critiquing on the short acrostic story mine. Have incorporated the corrections already.

    Have a nice day!

    Be out from blogging in a week or more for a holiday in Singapore! Hope to be back soon. I have scheduled some of my posts for automatic posting and hope it works.

    How do I enter?

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Sometime around February 1st, Mr. Harrison will post the word of the month. Once he does that, you have most of February to write a poem using the word. It can be in the poem. The poem can be about it. Like that. Once you’re happy with your poem, you post it in the comments. I think that students have to have a permission slip of some kind. The students that entered this month entered through their teachers. So . . . you may want to let your English/Reading teacher know about this site ASAP so he/she can check it out. I’m not sure if you can enter as a student without permission. Have your mom check the site out. Click on the Word of the Month for Students tab. Have fun.

    Okay, I will check back next month. 😀 Thanks for everything, Yousei!

  8. Tacy says:

    Is it too late to enter? Oh… it’s just his students, right? Well, I will still go vote. L8r!

      Unfortunately the contest has ended for this month. However, it is for anyone! Be sure and read the information on how to enter. It is a little bit more involved for students. I already mentioned your interest to hime, and I expect to see a poem from you entered next month!!! Glad you stopped by. 😀

    Hi Yousei,

    Many thanks for telling friends about the Word of the Month Poetry Challenge. In January we’ve enjoyed the most poems we’ve ever received and there are real jewels among them. I hope that February will bring even more.


    • Yousei Hime says:

      You’re quite welcome! I agree there are some real gems in the entries for January. I had a terrible time trying to decide on one. 😦 Can we have two votes? I’m hoping a few blog friends will go read now and participate next month. I’ll be sure and post February’s prompt when the time comes. 😉

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
