A Limerick...... [a limerick, as i 'see' it; very SHORT, of course] Poem by Bri Edwards


A Limerick is a lighthearted poem.
If I knew who wrote first one, I’d owe ‘im.
Such beauty and grace,
like a movie star’s face,
and so short it’s easy to stow ‘em.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

another poet, a friend, and i don't see eye-to-eye on what a limerick should 'look like'. i made the 'mistake' of 'publicly' suggesting that her limericks weren't.... so this is one i wrote (so i could sleep last night) to demonstrate how i followed the 'rules' for limericks which i copied from an online site.:

'A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm.' [i don't know what 'verbal rhythm' means. oh well.]

    Another poem with no comment, oh dear. Maybe this person who is mentioned in the notes has told people not to read it? ? What the hell, I just have anyway. NO ONE going to tell ME what not to read! ! Limericks are often looked down on in poetry anyway for some reason. (Report) Reply
