In the Kingdom by the Sea

In the kingdom by the sea,

In the mountains mantled blue,
On frigid winter's final day
Was born a man with but one task:

To kill the foe in Durza,
In the land of shadows.

Nurtured by the kind and wise

Under oaks as old as time,

by Eragon

Dear Doug,

Thank you for expressing your concerns about the perceived lack of impartiality in our poetry contest. We appreciate all feedback, and we take it seriously.

We want to clarify that our poetry contest is unique in that the participants themselves serve as the judges. Each participant has the opportunity to read and evaluate all submissions, and ultimately vote for the poem they believe is the best.

We have established strict guidelines and rules to ensure that the voting process remains fair and unbiased. We do not disclose the identity of the poets, and we ensure that each submission is presented anonymously.

We understand that some participants may have personal preferences or biases that could influence their voting decisions. However, we encourage all participants to approach the contest with an open mind and to evaluate each submission based on its merits.

We believe that our unique approach to the poetry contest allows for a diverse range of voices and perspectives to be represented. It also promotes community engagement and encourages participants to support and appreciate each other's work.

Thank you for your participation in our poetry contest! We hope that you will continue to be involved in future events.

We have yet to implement a text-to-voice feature that supports all languages, hopefully it is something that we will see in the near future.
However, I can say that the word 'creator' is pronounced 'Bo-Reh' In Hebrew.
Hope this helps!

Thank you for your contribution!
It seems that it was indeed missing part of the poem.
I have resubmitted it and it seems to have fixed the issue..
