Poetry Saturday

Hello folks ~

If I write a limerick, it is usually for a Poetry Saturday.  I still laugh at the one I wrote in April, so I am posting it again.  Hope you like it!

NaPoWriMo #24


He was Italian

and even owned a stallion

He frequented the House of Bernaducci

where the guests wore clothes from Gucci.

That was, of course, before he joined the battalion.

He was a brave man, fearless and bold

there never was a thought that he would get old

He weathered the war then to his home went back

Sadly he suffered a heart attack

simply because his stallion had been sold.

His wife, she was a strange one

never smiled at him till her work was done

She cooked, she cleaned, she stewed

“I work too hard,” was her attitude

She could not loosen up, for she didn’t know how to have fun.

Then one day the Italian and his wife were together

the wife decided to cut her husband’s tether

She wanted to treat him better

told him this without writing a letter

and kissed him, lightly as a feather.

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!

  1. I don’t think I’ve read a limerick that was actually told a proper story before. Most of them have been four or five line ditties that you couldn’t tell your Granny. Good job Sunshiney Girl! 🙂
