2020 has been a quite year for many, so we thought we would have a bit of fun and brighten the day for one lucky winner. We asked all aspiring poets to write and submit a short poem about American Blossom Linens and we entered them into a giveaway for a free set of Natural or White sheets.
We asked that the poem talk about one or more of the wonderful qualities of our bedding, for example that it is Made from Organic Cotton or Made in the USA or is soft and generously sized. The winner would be the person who wrote the nicest or funniest original poem as decided by the American Blossom associates.
We saw poems from the heart, poems with humor and everything in between.
Congratulations to our winner Amy Crist from Toms River, NJ, chosen by our American Blossom associates.
Amy’s poem is featured in our new blog post plus two poems that I’m sharing as honorable mentions. To each of our poets, I hope you had fun. And to all: I hope you enjoy reading them.
Winner- Amy Crist Toms River, NJ
American Blossom Linens
A design so timeless, craftsmen profess
You are my bed’s favorite dress
Drying on the line, sunlight threwn
One cannot be wrapped in it too soon
Organic, Pure, Chemical Free
Crisp, Cotton Linens; Heirloom Quality
Deep Pockets, Top to Bottom, Side to Side
Made in the U.S.A.; immense pride
Awaiting the moment to lay down my head
On American Blossom
Homespun Textile, Farm to Bed
Honorable Mention – Alex Harrison Gulfport, MS
If you want sheets for your bed
Therein lies a sleepy head
With American Blossom
You needn’t worry about your bosom
They’ll provide you with great quality
You need not worry about frivolity
And they are made in the USA
Hooray, for American Blossom
Honorable Mention – Corwin Byran Spokane, WA
In full costume she cried "Trick or treat!"
But was shocked when her dear mother shrieked
At the flowing white folds
And two new-cut eye holes
In her priceless new ABL sheets.
