I really enjoyed the magical element in this poem and the bouncy rhythm - a very appealing read. Vtd

@newpoet You're welcome. I hope you have fun with it. Also, good luck with your classes! I learned a lot from when I took such classes in college.

@multilovely I did something similar with my Free Verse and my Dramatic Monologue (which is also kind of a free verse). It will be interesting to see how strict the judges are, especially since this is the first time the contest is being held. 
                              Good luck with your own poem collection. :)

Thanks - I like learning new things :)
                              I have to hope bending the rules is okay too, since strictly speaking I've got mostly free verse poems and I've just categorized them as 'dramatic monologue', 'recueillement', 'carpe diem' and so on. At least I tried!

Is a drude something similar to a druid? 
                              I'm not particularly good with rhyming poems either, but is it 'okay'  to have near rhymes like 'home' and 'gnomes' in a villanelle?

@ScottWhitaker Thank you. That is excellent advice. I normally try not to hold onto articles, but the strangeness of working in a  formal structure made me forget that. I think that edit will help a lot.
