Monica I think this is fantastic, and I find the flow and more importantly the message spot on. A top-notch effort here and I wish you great luck with the Contest Committee.

Many thanks to you for sharing such a fine work of art filled with meaning and faith. :)

    I am deeply moved by your generous and supportive encouragement of this piece, Gloria. It meant much to me as I wrote it and to know that it has touched the hearts of others is truly a blessing beyond measure. Your kindness has both elevated my soul and humbled it for I know that I am merely a vessel and your lovely words and bevy of stars affirm that, in this instance, the vessel did the Master?s hand due justice. May your holidays be filled with light, love, and joy always!

Wow, wow, wow is about all I got. I can see why you are ranked so high. Not only is your writing spectacular, your message is so incredibly great I would believe you live in your writing as well. You can't fake that kind of message. God Bless you and everyone who has the privilege of reading this poem.

Thank you and so much more!

The true meaning of Christmas flows throughout this poetic story. I used to run a program for the homeless where I used to live in another state, and the histories of these downtrodden human beings are heart-wrenching. Bringing attention to their needs is a wonderful thing...especially when it's being done through couplets like these.
Blessings and prayers, Janet

That's lovely. Yes, it's a little early for Christmas, but it's never too early to be kind to each other. Some would not benefit from it, but many would. And it's always good for the one who does the kindness.

Congratulations, dear Angel. This is a masterpiece. I'm so sorry I missed this and late with my review. You sit now as poetress of FanStory. This will assuredly win the contest but I'll submit my humble offering just for fun. ;) Superb, marvelous, heart breaking and inspiring.
Sending you my best today as always,

This lyric would fit the tune of the accompanying video with only minimal reworking. It is effectively the 'Good King Wenceslas' story set in a modern city with the bartender in the role of the King.

The only thing that concerns me is that it is on the lengthy side for a song. Most songs of this type time out at around four minutes, which is about the limit of the attention span of the modern audience, after whiuch they start to shuffle their bottoms, and cough.

    It's actually the framework for a full length Christmas show - I have submitted it to Trans-Siberian Orchestra for this is the kind of thing they do annually on their Christmas tours. I agree, folks have trouble with staying focused, but American Pie and Italian Restaurant aren't exactly short - not to mention many of Gordon Lightfoot's masterpieces. I figure nothing ventured nothing gained :). I really appreciate your time and kind feedback.

This is a really lovely offering. Christmas is not a time of joy for all, that's for sure.

I picked up two tiny spags:
She knows she was wrong, as it's home she desires - delete apostrophe

The bartender shared of the menu's slight fair - should be 'fare'

Best of luck in the contest
Judy

This is a perfect poem and I loved the way the beat went and the many accompanying pictures gave homage to the words. Good luck in the contest and thank you for sharing.
