In celebration of spring and all that is beautiful, CBC Books hosted an online poetry contest on Tuesday, April 7!

For the Quickie Couplet Contest, eleven Canadian poets provided us with the first line of a rhyming couplet. These lines were Tweeted and posted on Facebook one every hour, starting at 9 a.m. ET. 

It was up to you to complete the couplet using the same rhyme and metre in the second line.
