A Limerick A Day – Day 31/32 – Happy National Poetry Month

And so, friends, we have come to the end of the March Limerick Madness.

Of course, this day brings a new reason to post and poeticize profusely: on April 1st we begin National Poetry Month. No foolin.’

Throughout the next 30 days, I’ll be sharing some new light verse of my own and bringing you a few delicious little discoveries, including wonderful visual poems that meld words and rhythm with moving images.

Today’s post, a fitting end to the Limerick-A-Day challenge and a fabulous kickoff to National Poetry Month, features two verses by one of my favorite up-and-coming young writers: my daughter Ella.

Easter Mourning

I’ve now got a rich chocolate bunny,
And to be quite honest, it’s funny:
What I really want
Is something to flaunt,
And that something is some pocket money.

April Rules

A whoopie cushion might burst,
So always fear for the worst.
What trick is planned?
Perhaps one that’s grand,
For today is April 1st.

  1. I look forward to memorizing Ms. Ella’s poetry during a lovely stroll one of these days — her verses are perfect for Poetry & Motion, that’s for sure!
