Just one small addition to this posting, there is a slight chance my poem won't make the final cut, although they've already sent me a publishing agreement that needs to be signed and returned.

Congratulations!!! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it makes it into the book. Even if it doesn't they thought enough of it to OFFER to publish it!! That's pretty darn good too!
