Like to rhyme? You're running out of time!

In holiday mode, some are inclined
To warble in verse, about nice things they find
They rhyme and they riddle
And have a good giggle
But we'll tell you one thing they should bear in mind...

Our poetry comp deadline is approaching quite fast
A £400 voucher awaits the winner unsurpassed
So compile the odd stanza
Hold your own poetry bonanza
But those rhymes are worth nowt when the deadline is passed...

You've till the end of September to create your verse
It can be about anything - we celebrate the diverse
So take a short moment
And don't forget a comment
And you could be the winner of our £400 voucher purse!

And back to normal prose! Anyone taking a holiday with us can enter, all you have to do is send us your poem - in any style or form you prefer - lovingly created whilst on holiday at one of our holiday homes. Do send your submissions with a short comment – it’s always interesting to hear the stories behind the poems. To enter, post your poem to us at the address below by the end of September:
