(May 12) Today we’re celebrating . . .  Limerick Day


Limerick Day
A limerick is a five line poem popularized by Edward Lear. On this his birthday, take some time to write your own limerick today. Here is an example to get you started. . .

There once were some rhymes they called limericks
Repeated by smart men and dimwits
They’re easy to make
A real piece of cake
Until you get to the last line

And many limericks can be quite colorful. Remember – There once was a man from Nantucket. . . ??

    Lets get outside and go for a ride on your big boy bike!
