    Limerick fun..one line at a time..

    Post by Willows on Thu Apr 15, 2010 8:32 pm

    Limericks consist of five lines.

    The first two lines must rhyme with one another and contain the same count of syllables, usually seven to ten syllables.

    The second two lines are shorter (four to seven syllables} and must rhyme with each other.

    The fifth line rhymes with the first two lines of the limerick and matches the number of syllables of the first two lines.

    Example:

    There once was a lady named Mary
    Who met a young fella named Harry
    The went for a ride
    She soon was his bride
    And they had a wee baby named Carrie.

    COPY and PASTE the preceding lines and then add your line and the next poster adds the next line until the limerick is complete. (Total of 5 lines)
    The poster who completes the limerick...must also add a "starter" line for the next limerick.

    (I'm not good at limericks but I'll give it a try
    to get this one finished.)

    A maiden sat 'lone in a garden
    As she wished her lover to pardon
    Down on one knee (Ig wrote)
    She ventured her plea
    Hoping she made a good bargain.

    Who wed a young cowboy called Willie;
    His hair was fair and she was happy to see;
    That his willy was really a dilly.

    A lesbian girl from Khartoum,
    Took a gay young man to her room,
    She said just wait
    Lets get something straight.

    She was a garage sale fanatic
    Bought things she stored in the attic.
    But when it got full she got very frantic.
    About where to find room, to put all the stuff,
    In a collection she thought was fantastic

    lol Wuzfuz!! Laughing You're a "hoot"! ..but check out Post #1 to see what the "construction" of a limerick is all about.

    Very Happy Sure did get a kick out of your creations, though...!
    All the more reason, why you should be writing some of your poems in the Writing forum or in Willow's Workshop! Looking forward to more of your poems!

    Shaved his head like a billiard ball.
    Said it feels quite cool.
    But I'm nobody's fool.

    Thanks Willows but you flatter me.

    I have yet to find my poetic Muse and as an impatient type with a practical nature, doubt I will ever find my artistic side if I even have one.

    There was an old maid from Kincaid,
    Who thought she would like to get laid.
    She had no boy, Maybe getting a toy ,perhaps a banana woud do.
    It barely sufficed but very low priced
    And was pleased with how little she paid.

    There was young boy from Belgrade.
    Who loved to watch a parade'
    But he was so short,
    He had to resort,
    To just hearing the bands as they played.
