Just Two Limericks - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

There was a young lady from Perth
who was born on the day of her birth.
She grew older with grace
and wore Persian lace.
She died lonely and soon left this earth.

A spinster of St. Maxime, France
on a Friday went out to a dance,
in the hope that she might
find a young shining knight,
she was homely at first and last glance.

    I love 'Limericks' Herbert, they flow nicely on the tongue. I remember one my Uncle used to say. He lived in Kings Lynn in Norfolk.
    There was a young man from Kings Lynn,
    Who was so exceedingly thin,
    That when he assayed,
    To drink lemonade,
    He slipped through the straw and fell in.

    Just a little 'ditty' for you.

    I loved your two they are great. Limericks give amazing choices and quotes. Love Ernestine XXX
