Pantygynt, I missed this one as a competition but congratulations on winning first place :-) My goodness, I can see why it won. Lots of rhythm, rhyme, alliteration, imagination, technical formats and clever construction. I am very impressed. In fact, I only have one six left and it is all yours. I shall bookmark this one for future reference and reads. Thank you ~DD

Hey! I remember this! I believe I voted for it! This is awesome and I love that you gave the format within the poem itself. Very informative and educational. It had a cliffhanger within and I loved the line where the person says "Mad Bastard". The whole bit, your words, the format, the photo, the overall piece was truly great. Good job and I am sorry I was out of sixes, but sure my vote went to you! :)

    Thank you for this complimentary review and also for your vote in the contest. It was encouraging to note how your comments went beyond the mere technical requirements of the piece and covered the story line and the remark of the passer- by.

Well, there was never any doubt that you get all these meters perfect. It would be scary watching this, much less being the one in the canoe. You should have entered this in the contest.

(Didn't you say in class we should not end a line like
"stop wave is catching canoe in its clutches, the
franticly paddling canoeist, fatigued."

    Thank you so much for your review and six star grading. It was entered in the contest and it won. Lol.

    I would love to discuss your question on TS3 regarding the line ending if you could spare the time.

reply by damommy on 25-May-2019
    Oh, WOW! Congratulations. For some reason, I'm not receiving notifications. I've talked to Tom but you know how that goes.

reply by the author on 25-May-2019
    It was a blind contest so fans were not informed until after the results had been announced. I do hope you will contact me on TS3 re that line ending.

reply by damommy on 25-May-2019
    I will try to do that very soon. Maybe tomorrow.

I found this write a delighting read, given story takes reader on a journey down a river, placing them inside the boat feeling all aspects of being there. All stated in my opinion.

Wow - a tremendous job in this challenging poem. You did it well, and still told a story in the midst of it all. Kudos to your talent and skill. It was most creative and also read well.

Don't know how I missed this - guess it was an anonymous post?
Brilliantly done, Jim and worthy of a six!
Thanks for teaching us these types of meter while giving us a story as well!

    Yes it was. The contest was a blind. I am glad you caught it now. Many thanks.

Interesting story told here in the variety of meters, I am not surprised you won the contest. I'm glad it was the words that drowned and not the man. That was a well done twist at the end!
