Limerick.6- Usain Bolt (Re submission)


Usain Bolt, the 'Cheetah’, like a thunder bolt,
Dashed and darted towards his final halt
With all his might combined
Pushing his opponents behind
Making the world wonder if Bolt, a colt

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wonder if it is a limerick proper! But watching the World Athletic Meet, and the sprints of Usain Bolt who bagged three gold medals, I am resubmitting this. Usain Bolt is a wonder. What elegance, what ferocious grace to watch this sturdy six footer leaping towards the finish! !

    A fine limerick and it is proper as per the format... Usain Bolt deserves the attention of all. The first statement of Thomas Robinson amazes me and every poet has to live and travel along in a bigger world seeing the obviously visible all along.. (Report) Reply

    Unfortunately I am unfamilar with Usain Bolt, have never seen him run. But that can be remedied.
    Now you have accomplished two things with your limerick; a good poem and education of the masses. (Report) Reply

    Beautifully penned with a touch of humour and in a way a tribute to Bolt's talent. (Report) Reply
