Winner of the Poem Contest

Meep!
I must say some of your poems were pawesome! It's been hard choosing the best, but here is the winner's poem:

Songbirds’ whimsy chorus banishes winter’s woe
And creamy laced blossoms adorn the young cherry
After long beneath cold ice sprinkled with soft snow
Shining goldfish awake to join the spring merry
This is what it could have been far back up North where
The soft rays of sun shed gently down upon me
Pale yellow butterflies flit with bliss here and there
My heart belongs up North yet they just cannot see
What have I left behind me, my good days of young
The blazing Southern sun cannot veil my teardrops
I yearn for the song that all the birds up North sung
For the soothing breeze that whispered in the treetops
I have only memories of my life up North
The dry brittle grass crunches sharp under my feet
All the pines choke my optimism and so forth
Now I am trapped by the South sun’s relentless heat
But maybe, just maybe, perhaps on a slight chance
There is something in the South for me to cherish
Is it the peaceful crashing of waves as they dance
Or the awe striking thunder that makes fear perish
I may live in the South where the fiery sun
Shines without rest till it sets in a blaze of art
But now I’m in the South I do not have to run
I know that I’ll be forever North in my heart.
 I chose this one because it, firstly, is extremely well written and also because I can relate to it... D:
 So, congratulations hannahandmemy! So, hannahandmemy, you win these!
 
I will send them to you from my side account, contestprizes. I'm not sure when I'll be able to, but definitely some time today or tomorrow (Animal  Jam isn't loading currently...)
Bye for now! :)
