Everyday is a Holiday and Today is National Limerick Day

Today May 12 is National Limerick Day so I decided to figure out how to write a limerick and I want to encourage you to do the same and have some fun with it.

Borrowing from Giggle Poetry’s website I found super easy instructions for writing a limerick, then I used the RhymeZone’s Rhyme Disctionary to help me find rhyming words.

I came up with the following:

Although I have a corporate job

I’d rather stay home and blog

To write each day

For a little pay

My heart in joy would throb.

I also came up with one for my favorite guy:

I am in love with a boy

Who brings me much joy

With his eyes of blue

And a heart that’s true

We’ve created a love nothing will destroy.

OK, one more for my daughter:

My daughter Shianne is a beauty

Boys even call her a cutie

With long hair of brown

And rarely a frown

Her smile lets you know she’s not snooty.

I’ll spare you of anymore, but give it a try and have some fun.  Then share with me what you come up with.

Enjoy National Limerick Day 🙂
