Limerick Day-Challenge


 Saturday is Limerick Day!  To celebrate, I thought I'd issue a challenge to my blog readers to write their own limerick...or...you 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

    there once was a girl who would cry
    nearly friendless, although she did try
    later on she did sing
    of her Best Friend, her King
    as she lifted her hands to His sky
