Exploring Nature: Poetry Contest | San Marcos record

It’s always a good time for poetry. So, let’s have another bird poetry contest.

In the past, these contests have drawn entrants from as far away as Pittsburgh and the top prize was $50.

Inflation has hit, so we will raise the price to $100. And the winning poem will be published in my newspaper column.

The rules are quite simple – keep the poem reasonably short; make sure it rhymes and put it on time. The deadline for entries is Friday, September 30. Send the poem, via the Postal Service, to Jerry Hall, 750 Cypress Creek Lane, Wimberley, TX 78676. Be sure to include your own mailing address and phone number so I can contact you. to let you know you’ve won and send you your cash prize.

My daughter Jennifer from Moulton, Texas wrote a poem to give you an idea of ​​what I have in mind. It’s here:


In the morning, I go cycling. On rare occasions, I hike. As I count my blessings, You can imagine my surprise When a roadrunner flies past my eyes. The best things in life really are free, thanks to all the birds for reminding me!

I hope you enjoyed Jennifer’s ode; I hope it will inspire you to poetic heights.

Remember, this is your chance for fame and fortune, at least on a small scale. And $100 will always come in handy. Don’t delay, get this poem today.
