Love the message this poem brought forth. I really loved it.

God bless~
You did a great job showing the topic. Your flow and rhyme is spot on. You did a great job.

I did a double take at your title. My (7 year old) granddaughter is named "Ella Louise." I had so much fun reading this and thinking about her. I had to send a link to her mom! Thanks for this entertainment this evening.

This is really delightful to read - you have a wonderful grasp of rhythm and rhyme and it shines through from start to finish without sounding "contrived". It would be wonderful for young readers if you could write a book of rhymes like this that relate especially to the drama and conflicts that goes along with this age group!

Your title hooked me because the "please her" phrase reminded me of the old Barry Ryan hit "Eloise." But I enjoyed the clever rhyming and rhythm - and the simple message in your work. Well done.
Congratulations on ranking 14th overall! Happy Dance! My daughter was thing of naming Baby, Ella Louis, but I guess she didn't look like one on the ultrasound. Her name is still a mystery (which is driving me nuts, they told the dog but not me!) but I smiled at your poem and the almost name that my daughter loved.
