    Considering the number of poets we have on this site, the low number of votes cast so far is rather disappointing.

    Congratulations to YesNo, who is the winner of our Christmas Poetry Contest 2010:

    The well of grace is deep.

    They gazed above and then below.
    They went as far as they could go
    And felt joy's warm delight.

    The star then faded from the sky,
    But in their hearts it's shining high
    As first seen one dark night.
