White background. Upper left yellow text "2019 Sonnet / Winner!". Upper right black text "Abel Birchfield". Center black script text "Together Apart / I've waited for a thousand years to pass / Before I trust to hold you in my arms. / Repose and peace shall come to me at last; / Once more I shall be wondered by your charms. / My soul doth ache each day we are apart, / And often I have pined for lack of sleep, / As gently, on my bed, my throbbing heart / Reminds me of our love, intense and deep. / And yet, amidst the tears, I think of you, / And deep within I feel a subtle glow: / An honest taste of joy so pure and true, / That few will understand this love I know. / For neither time nor space nor storm nor sea / Can separate my truest love from me."
