That is correct, Frank.

So your Rosebud poem is eligible for April.

I always assumed that the criteria for choosing what
month a poem comes under was the initial post, not the edited post.
i.e. if a poem is posted in June, then updated in July then either month
would be apt.

  Hi Bob, Whereas the others are usually 1st person/persona-poem, this one reads well, reads right as 3rd person narrative.

"Rosebud." -- Citizen Kane

  Hi Frank, Thanks for the explanation - as I hoped, Rosie is indeed an animal - I thought of a hunted doe or rabbit - Thank God not a human - but that is evidence that the poem rises (that word "assailants") to a piercing symbolic reading of human exploitation - poetry is metaphor ^^ Consider "sque...
