Write a Limerick to honor Limerick Day
Limerick – The limerick, which gets its name from a town in Ireland, is a five-line joke of a poem.
The standard form of a limerick is a stanza of five lines, with the first, second and fifth having eight or nine syllables and rhyming with one another, and the third and fourth having five or six and rhyming separately. Lines are usually written in the anapaestic meter, but can also be amphibrachic.
The first line traditionally introduces a person and a place, with the place appearing at the end of the first line and establishing the rhyme scheme for the second and fifth lines. In early limericks, the last line was often essentially a repeat of the first line, although this is no longer customary.
Post your attempt here, I’d love to see them.
My boys are excited about Stay Up All Night event on the 12th. We’ve planned a movie and game extravaganza. We’re going to watch movies, play games and snack until everyone falls asleep. I predict that will happen by 10:30pm.
