JUDGE COMMENTS: "A very poignant and moving poem that touches the heart. It is well structured and flows effortlessly with excellent rhyme and rhythm throughout. It captures the knowledge that every word spoken in freedom reflects the sacrifice of the war veteran that enabled it to be so.

"Behind every freely spoken word, there is a veteran unheard."

Congratulation must go to the author on creating such a moving poem.

JUDGE COMMENTS: "A delicately written poem that tells of sudden death – very moving indeed. It is well constructed and paints the sad picture so cleverly with a minimum of words.

Will not come back,

A stroke was all it took."

Congratulations to the author for creating such a poignant poem."

JUDGE COMMENTS: "A unique approach to the coming of winter. A well constructed poem with excellent imagery

" a brilliant world drawing into

Itself like a butterfly turning

Into a cocoon

uniquely reveals the reversal in the coming season."

Congratulations to the author.

The winner, Marisa, is eligible for a $25 paypal payment if a paypal email address is provided.

All poems were read by three independent judges. Each judge could reward a star to a poem that was read if they thought it was a top poem. All poems that received one or more stars from the judges were then classified as finalists. The Finalists were then read and reviewed again in a final round of judging to then choose the top poems.

Thanks again to everybody.

Great Job!

The VoicesNet Team.
