Let Us Begin With a Limerick

by Kristina Woodhill

Hum, hum, it is time to hum limericks
A warm up to Irish toasts, Irish tricks
You see them, then don't
Leprechauns wink, then won't
They'll spin you a yarn, trade gold pots of bricks

Soft rain tapped its tune drip-then-dropical
Lush background a hedged path subtropical
You'd think you were viewing
Eire's moors, wool tails queueing
yet there in the grass glides a crockidal

Ole Wave laps its tongues on tight Causeway rocks
Hexagonal columns hold back sea knocks
Where great Giants threw
Down a challenge or two
Brave roars echo still, chasing sea gull squawks

"crockidal"--Ha! I enjoyed all of this, but the forced (farced?) rhyme made it perfect ;)

Pure fun! Great writing. You surely know how to play with words. Great limericks as well.

LOL! Entertaining stuff Kristina. I heard the other day that political correctoids now want to change St. Patrick's Day to Irish Day. :/

'Tis a pleasure to write this review
Having feasted on pure Irish spew
that threw up a surprise
in your words to the wise
as you served neologism stew.
