Father's Fun - Poem by Saheb Mohapatra

When the darkness encaged the glittering sun,
Words uttered from someone unknown.
I was frightened, my toes too started trembling
And when I woke up to find out the truth,
I found my father happily snoring.

    This is simply beautiful and phenomenal write and short and funny as well....Saheb......but you have made it a
    sweet poem instead of limerick.....while composing limerick you should keep in mind its rules like
    lines 1,2 and 5 should rhyme and lines 3 and 4 should rhyme also, lines 1,2 and 5 should have 7 – 10 syllables and lines 3 and 4 should have 5 – 7 syllables. Any way a tenner from me for good composition
