I try and write a limerick for Esther Chiltons blog on a Monday. Someone puts a prompt word up and people respond.
I usually forget to copy my limerick for myself but I did today. Its a bit clumsy, the lines are quite long, but it does have the structure of a limerick. That is the first two lines have the last word rhyming, the next two lines rhyme with each other and then the final fifth line rhymes with the first two.
Here it is, the prompt word was ‘lark’ which can appear anywhere in the limerick, not necessarily at the end of a line.
I’m very rarely up with the lark
Early attendance I get a black mark
Just goes to show staying up late
Does not myself an early bird make
I get up so late, its already gone dark!
