And the winner is -- 
Frost! with 7 votes
Neruda received 5
Dickinson 4
and Shakespeare 3

Only those who wrote couplets -- following the directions -- had a vote toward the result. 

Here are two of the couplet responses:

Emily's bird came down the walk,
It only ate, it did not talk.

I snapped an unlucky worm in two,
and drank up some convenient dew.

It got out of the way of a beetle's roam,
and that's the end of Emily's poem.
    -- Ava N.

I chose William Shakespeare.
The words that came out of his mouth, I like to hear.
It made me joyous and happy,
Even if I felt crappy.
He puts a  ?  smile on my face,
As his words gently glide through space.
 -- Hillary H. 

Everyone will participate in the remaining challenges.

Everyone be ready next time to present  your Frozen Tableau.
You should also all be working on your artistic representations for the class after that.
