    Mark, a lovely story of true love by the lemon drop kid. Your rhyming is done beautifully. Not sure why the nomination tabs aren't available yet?

    An amazing and beautiful story weaved on lemon drops. It's so unique. Even these little lemon drops, as a subject, can give life to a love that is true and enduring. It was easy to see that the girl readily accepted the treat when she was a child, but in the ending stanza she asked lemon drop kid why he always have a lemon drop handy...as if a lemon drop would help her. Clearly as we grow, we tend to lessen the value of the things that have made us happy as children.

    I am so glad this is nominated. Great work here, Mark!

    P.S. I had hepatitis before and I am forced to eat lots of lemon drops. Your write reminded me of those days. :-)

    "Lemon Drop Kid" By Mark 10 points

    This poem By Mark took me back to my years in senior school.

    I was not what you would call one of the "in kids" and certainly not one of the popular ones. However I made a friend all those years ago who has stayed with me as a friend. We have never dated but even now I still think there is a glint.

    This poem snapped me back through decades and I do mean decades. That is without a shadow of doubt the skill of the poet.

    I have a little smile on my face as a result.

    Thank you for rekindling memories and prompting me to message said friend.

    The structure and format of the poem are story like and you wish for the next chapter. I hope there are many more to follow.

    Excellently written and formed (10

    This is one of those stories that will touch anyone’s heart.
    Though the title suggests something else, the story weaved
    around it is simply heart warming and very precious. It
    really made me want to read till the end and rather then
    stopping halfway and that’s how good this poem has been delivered…excellent!
