Limerick Day-Challenge

 Saturday is Limerick Day!  To celebrate, I thought I'd issue a challenge to my blog readers to write their own can just post one you like.  Please make sure it's family friendly! According to Merriam Webster, a limerick is "a light or humorous verse form of five chiefly anapestic verses of which lines 1, 2, and 5 are of three feet and lines 3 and 4 are of two feet with a rhyme scheme of aabba" Here is a limerick I wrote: x There once was a very shy girl Who grew up and gave speaking a whirl She liked it so much She deveoloped her touch And now they say "Attagirl!" Your turn! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ If you liked this post, read…Seven Reasons Why YOU Should Sign Up for the Art of Eloquence Newsletter

    Okay. I’ll give it a go. . . LOL (accents on words are in caps so you say it correctly to get the rhythm. :))

    There once was a cat from TraLEE
    Whose name was O’Mara, you see
    O’Mara did lunch
    With the Irish cat bunch
    And said, “Leave a bit more for me!”

    Hey, it’s morning and I didn’t sleep. I’ll have to think of some other ones. LOLOL

    There once was a town with no name.
    Who’s towns-people said " this is a shame" !
    We must give it a theme…
    and put up a beam,
    that guides Santa and all of his sleigh!
