Read the winning poem below.
Sonnet 17, Quiet Time
Wing beats of ducks echo across the pond;
stirring passions as summer fades away.
Warmth of the sun once greeted my morning.
Now, crispy mists are here to start my day.
Trees blossom with colorful leaves of Fall,
we watch them all slowly soar down to earth;
squirrels scurry along the old stone wall;
stash acorns for food during winter's mirth.
Looking to the west I see wood smoke rise;
from cabins that dot the hills and far shore.
Winds carry geese flying south in the skies.
Birds at the feeder eating seeds galore
Cherished memories found within a rhyme.
Autumn owns the clock, it's now Quiet Time.
