Rhyming story for Highlights

Anyone ever had a rhyming story published with Highlights? I am not referring to rebus stories. I've seen some of those.

The submission guidelines say they "seldom" purchase rhyming stories...but it doesn't say "never".

I have a story that is a little over 200 words and it rhymes. If anyone who has had one accepted wants to share their experience, I would really appreciate it!

Anyone?

I have seen a rhyming story by Joy Cowley. I have not been successful, but if it meets their standards they will publish a rhyming story--the length sounds good. Good luck!

In the latest issue, there's a very funny rhyming story -- using big words and all.
So, go for it.

I haven't had a chance to read the latest issue yet. We have a subscription, but it's in my daughter's name and SHE gets to read it first. ;) But I will soon.

Thanks ya'll!
