david, think of your submitted poem as needing to have at least three paragraphs. HeatherN calls them "stanzas" but i think it's easier if you think of them as paragraphs.
your poem is written as 1 long paragraph with 7 lines.
BUT... the contest does allow 3 lines per paragraph.
So... if you break down your poem into 3 lines per paragraph, then you already have 2 completed paragraphs for your poem... with the last line (Crove on my eyes go up. Again as I get faster.) as part of the 3rd paragraph.
i don't remember seeing a minimum number of required lines for a paragraph, so i think that may be enough to enter your poem into the contest.
hope that helps. ;-)
