we should all remember humility.
sometimes we get what we give and sometimes not so much.
I like the darkness as he is always on your trail.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my poem, Pamela. I appreciate both your time and your comments.
    I also agree. Humility should always be exercised in every instance, if possible.
    Enjoy your day.

Pleasant screams! What incongruous words.

Your yarn is like the fairy tales of old and the Bible itself - the sins of the fathers. The poor little girl never had a chance against Maven Fitch ( what a super name). Neither did her two-timing young mother.

Your sad tale of horror is magnificently presented, still I hate it when a dog has to die in any story. That he was fighting for the mother and child made it even sadder.

You are very talented in creating an ambiance of terror with both words and pictures. Excellent imagery.

Best of luck in the contest with this exceptional entry.

Blessings to you,
Linda

Wow, this was so good reminds me of the stories I heard in my childhood. The selection of the photographs you could almost feel the dark eerie draft, they reflected in this scary tale. The flow of the rhyme and the words assured me you are indeed a ranked author. I cant seem to give you six stars I would if I could dean. All the best and God Bless

This has that homespun feel that you wanted my friend. the imagery of the family sitting round the fire listening to the tale to flickering candlelight. The words are sure to get the heartbeat rising and then you go and add the banjo with swamp sounds - eeeeeeeek. Great rhyme and flow and a fine tale you tell Dean. Best wishes for the contest.
Bless you
John

    First of all, thank you first and foremost for taking the time to read this rather lengthy poem, John. In addition, I am very grateful to your for your encouraging comments and exceptional six star rating. But more than winning the contest, great ratings, or anything else that might be involved, I'm just very pleased that you enjoyed the story and presentation.
    Thanks so much again, my friend.

    With gratitude

I love you use of internal rhyme as well as end rhyme in this. It had to be a bit tricky to write. I'm hiding this story from my dog. Don't want her getting anyof those evil ideas, LOL. Loved this one, my friend~Debbie

    Thank you very much for the kind and thoughtful comments, as well as the shiny six stars. I deeply appreciate it, and I'm very pleased you enjoyed the poem.

    Hugs, my friend!

Hi Dean,

I'm sure this will do well in the Story Poem contest, so I'll wish you the best of luck. The rhyme scheme and meter are spot on and your format is perfect for this contest entry. I find the 'extras' to be distracting when I read. Your work is strong and stands alone without all of the theatrics. One picture is great, multiples distract, as do the sound effects.

    Thank you, Dovey, and I realize that my graphics laden presentations do not appeal to everyone. It's one of those love it/hate it things. Those who love them REALLY do, and those who don't, well...they are entitled to their opinions.
    Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Thanks for your kind and complimentary assessment of my story poem entry, Eric. However you may be unaware that I've entered this site sponsored contest on several occasions but have never even so much as placed in it. Having said that, and given the fact this particular contest is voted on by Fanstory's hard working Competition Enforcement Committee, I'd wager that your story poem has a much better chance of winning top prize than my own. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the read, and your six star rating and affirming comments are deeply appreciated.
    With gratitude

Hi Dean,

Alas, I have run out of my sixes for this one otherwise I would have slapped one on this exceptional offering of yours. You have set the mood perfectly with the music and the imagery as well as your fantastic story-telling. Thanks for sharing this! R

Some learned terror by experiencing it. Some never learn because they fled. Then there were those like you, Dean, who learned how to live with your fears. Very innovative.

Course I always love a little banjo music as it reminds me of Deliverance and sets the mood.

Your poem is terrific, Dean, excellent meter and the rhymes internal and external really bring the story to life.

The artwork is incredible and the dog with the human arm bone works perfectly with your tale.

Exceptional is all I can say.

Gloria
