Limerick R38 Cheese Loving Mouse / पनीर प्रेमी चूहा (Hindi) - Poem by Rajnish Manga

There once was a mouse that loved cheese,
But in vain, as the scent made him sneeze,
Till he took some cologne
Well mixed with ozone —
And now he says 'more if you please.'

(Writer of this English Limerick is not known)
इक चूहे को खाने में पनीर बहुत ही भाता था;
पर पनीर से छींकें आती हाल बुरा हो जाता था;
तब कोलोन लिया करता,
मिक्स ओज़ोन किया करता,
खाते-खाते ‘और दीजिये' फिर तो कहता जाता था.

    Aaawww! I love this very sweet and appealing Limerick. The story of the mouse who loved cheese is beautifully narrated, Rajnish. You paint such a beautiful picture of the scene that I could see it in my mind as I read. The mouse is like me, I think he too has an allergy to cheese, but I don't sneeze, the aroma of cheese makes my physically sick! Oh, I so enjoy your wonderful Limericks, Rajnish. Exquisite crafting. This poem is a truly enchanting poetic gem. Gratitude for sharing. Blessings... (Report) Reply
