A Limerick...... [a limerick, as i 'see' it; very SHORT, of course]


A Limerick is a lighthearted poem.
If I knew who wrote first one, I’d owe ‘im.
Such beauty and grace,
like a movie star’s face,
and so short it’s easy to stow ‘em.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

another poet, a friend, and i don't see eye-to-eye on what a limerick should 'look like'. i made the 'mistake' of 'publicly' suggesting that her limericks weren't.... so this is one i wrote (so i could sleep last night) to demonstrate how i followed the 'rules' for limericks which i copied from an online site.:

'A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm.' [i don't know what 'verbal rhythm' means. oh well.]

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
