Very clever! I wondered what the chicks would have looked like had they hatched!

Brilliant! Such a clever and comical ode. This is definitely out of the 'nest' box, entertaining and fun. The line - Her nest even higher she peered down her beak, had me in stitches. I could picture it perfectly. Who would think to write about a hen for the topic of Pride! Got to be a winner!

You amaze me with your delightful poetry! What a great story that would be perfect for a children's book! I loved so many lines, especially: "The hen was the squawk of the town." Of course the ending was perfect too. Congratulations!

Congratulations, Beth! Your poem is brilliant! I loved the story of Clarabelle May's rise and fall, told in such wonderful verse.

Congratulations, Beth!
This is so clever and humorous; it surely didn't lay an egg!
Congratulations on a clear winner! I love the way you play with the farmyard genre- so much your own. The structure was brilliant and I was delighted with the lines in between the stanzas and the way they echoed the previous stanza.
The paragon-pariah is a very interesting concept. Sheer delight!
