This is reminiscent of fine 18th and 19th century poetry.

The irregular meter and rhyme scheme tripped me up a bit--and FYI, the first word should have been 'Tis (the apostrophe takes the place of the 'i' in the longer form--'it is').

You have the heart of a great poet--keep writing!
Hi Maryknoll. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Beloved's Homecoming, actually did very well in the Light and Dark Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 12th in that Level. There were a lot of entries this week, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so give yourself a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. It’s going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
