Remember Limericks? They were like the bite size versions of poetry, not as fun as Haiku’s but still good enough to get reviews (I don’t even know what that means). Let’s end the work week/school week on a high note, with a Limerick about random life. Also, I added two examples of Limericks at the bottom.
There once was a boy name Ray
Who was made out of clay
He smiled ten times a day
Why? Because he ran away with May
And lived a life on the bay.
-Jo ( I made this up in 10 seconds -thank you)
There was an Old Man of Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
His daughter, called Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.
There was a young lady of station
“I love man” was her sole exclamation
But when men cried, “You flatter”
She replied, “Oh! no matter
Isle of Man is the true explanation.
(From To Miss Vera Beringer by Lewis Carroll)
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you had a fantastic week, let me know if you like Limericks or give an example of your own Limerick.
