In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, today’s poetry style is in limerick form – the type of poem that originated in Ireland. 🙂
There’s something to be said for the wearing o’ the green
With pride, the wearer seems to have a certain sheen
The colorful St. Patrick’s Day parades can’t be beat
Last year St. Paul, MN had for its parade an outside temperature of high heat
All kinds of clothing types, including shorts, were seen.
But hey, aren’t limericks supposed to be funny?
Well yes, so our model can’t be a humble bunny.
I love to write limericks because I love to laugh
So I try to picture something funny, like a giraffe
Or a pair of costume-wearing, dancing walruses, now that’s a honey!
I hope you have a wonderful day
where your inner child can come out to play
Of a favorite beverage, take a sip
Before your brother on a watery floor will slip
One more stanza will do
I should write about the funny ewe
Who hid out on a ship
So her coat they couldn’t clip
Because unshorn sheep are far too few.
