Didn't I get 7 votes?

Thanks for including my poem in your little poll, and thanks to those who voted! This was fun to stumble upon.

My screen's been freezing up on your page so unfortunately I couldn't vote in the last few rounds. Seems to have fixed itself now!

I'm delighted to be the "class vote" -- you made my week! Best to all (especially those who voted for me! ) and have a great summer...
