New Verses of "The Cuckoo's Song"

I'm pleased to announce that "The Cuckoo's Song" has a new sponsor, dormouse_in_tea, and three new verses. You can read this fantasy ballad about a faery woman and her mortal husband on the original page, where verses are being posted one at a time as they are funded. Current sponsors are marina_bonomi, janet_miles, and dormouse_in_tea.

96 lines, Buy It Now = $48
Donations so far = $34
Amount remaining = $14

Now just to make things interesting ... I'll offer you a new option. The general donation fund currently holds $20. (It might get more, or might not, by the time I post the poetry selection poll.) You could finish funding "The Cuckoo's Song" and still have enough left for a short poem; or you could fund part of this one and have a little more for this month's poems. Voters, take your places!

Poll #1471441 Cuckoos or Werecritters?
This poll is closed.

Would you like to direct general donation funds toward "The Cuckoo's Song"?

Yes, $14. I can't wait to read the end!
Yes, $10. I want to have my cake and eat it too.
Yes, $5. Faeries, horrors, hard decision.
No thanks, I have my eye on something from October.
