Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

This week, we kick off our News at Eleven section with "An Ode to the Countryside". The National Trust, a non-governmental charity in England, which protects and opens "to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments," is looking for the "the best poem about the British countryside." Following this is a link to Ruth Padel''s look at Fiona Sampson''s Rough Music, followed by two looks at Seamus Heaney''s Human Chain. Other names to drop, just for starters, are Roger McGough, W.S. Merwin, Katharine Towers, and Natasha Trethewey.

Thanks are due again to our summer IBPC judge Ruth Ellen Kocher (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/ruth-ellen-kocher). Her [url=]results for August are in (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2010/8). Congratulations to the poets and the poetry boards that sent in the winning poems:

1st Place: The Catch, written by C.J. Costello, from the poetry board The Poets'' Graves
2nd Place: A Quieting, written by Michael Harty, from Wild Poetry Forum
3rd Place: Natural Selections, written by Michelle Beth Cronk, from Poetry Circle

Thanks for clicking in.
