The 3rd contest will be a scramble challenge. You will be given a list of words and you must create a poem using only the words given. You may only use the words the number of times it appears on the list.

Please note that these words were taken from a poem that someone else has already written. Using these same words, I'd like to see how many different poems can be created. The original will be posted after voting has taken place.

Challenge Rules:

+You may add or change punctuation or capitalization of any of the words.
+You don't have to use all of the words, but try to use as many as you can!
+Your title MUST come from the list given. Once you've used words for the title, you may not use them again in the poem, unless words are listed more than once.
+You may submit up to 3 poems.
+Submit your poems to this screened post in this format:

TITLE
Author
Poem


I also realize that this list is rather small. Since this is the first structure challenge we've done, I thought I'd keep it simple. Be assured that in the future I wil choose poems with more words for you to use. :)

Have fun! Your entries are due by Friday, March 10!
