Alright, the votes have been tallied and it was a close call!
First Place: Cutlerine's poem with six points
Second Place: BlahISuck's poem Frost with five points
Third Place: isthatyoudan's poem with three points
Fourth Place: Rococo's poem with two points
Everyone else got either one point apiece or no points. The voting turnout wasn't really that bad after I announced the extention, but I was afraid I'd have to cast a tie breaking vote because Cutlerine and BlahISuck kept getting consistent votes (which I surprisingly didn't have to).
I'm going to revise the contest's procedures before starting the next round. Two things I'm considering are 1.) having the first week just be for submitting entries with the second week be for voting and 2.) possibly changing the voting procedure or just asking judges to vote on what poems they think are best. I'm open for suggestions at this point. The next contest won't be until after the (U.S.) Thanksgiving weekend.
