Winner of the Spring Has Sprung 2011 Poetry Contest!

I am so pleased to be able to announce the winner of the Spring Has Sprung Poetry Contest: Miss Felicity Faith Deverell of New Zealand! :) Thank you to each and every person who entered. It wouldn't have been a contest if you hadn't entered! :P Miss Deverell wins the original watercolor painting illustrating her poem. I will try to get it painted in the next week or two (gardening prevents it from being much sooner) and I will send it to you! Please email me your mailing address at
Thank you, and once more,congratulations to Felicity! (Her poem is printed in full below)

A Change of Season
By Felicity Deverell

Spring, like autumn, brings
Changes to the air;
Cold stil bites one sharply,
But pleasanter and clear.

No regard 'ny more
For chill nipping frost,
Such things come to nothing
'Fore flowers and are lost.

The days arise 'neath
A cerulean sky,
Old southern winds die with
A voluntary sigh.

And a lark lingers
Where black clouds once were,
Rejoicing with every
Wing-beat the springtime stir.

There you have it! Thanks for all the great entries! ~Rachel
