Celebrate Limerick Day (and Edward Lear) With A Limerick — Updated with 2nd Limerick
Mother’s Day isn’t this week’s only important holiday. What else is there? International Limerick Day, of course, which celebrates the May 12th birthday of Edward Lear. After all, nobody’s done more than Edward Lear to popularize the limerick.
a limerick two limericks to celebrate Lear and National Limerick Day, and I hope you’ll write one too:
Limerick Ode To Edward Lear
By Madeleine Begun Kane
It’s Limerick Day — did you hear —
On May 12th for the birth of Ed Lear.
In his honor that day
And thank him for spreading good cheer.
Update: I’ve written Edward Lear a 2nd limerick:
Edward Lear was a poet quite witty,
Who wrote verse rather brief, even bitty.
His birthday’s 12 May,
So we treasure that day
In thanks for the limerick ditty.
(Note: I’m also celebrating National Limerick Day on Facebook too.)
