Happy National Poetry Month! (Limerick)

April’s a big month for poets — National Poetry Month. This means that instead of simply enjoying spring, poets drive themselves extra crazy by vowing to write a poem a day.

My first April effort was this week’s Limerick-Off challenge. Only 29 poems to go.

Here’s a limerick for Day 2:

Happy National Poetry Month! (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

April’s Poetry Month. Say “Hurray,”
As we vow to write verse ev’ry day.
But that promise is hard,
For this limerick-bard.
Cuz, alas, I have nothing to say.

  4. Haha, cool! Still, you managed to say something ;-)

  5. sometimes the best way to coax a stubborn verse out is to verbally jab it just a bit, very nice!

    It’s hard even if you always have plenty to say and babble at the drop of a hat. It’s just hard. But you made me laugh, Mad, so all’s not lost.

  9. You have a lot to say I think–and cleverly!

    I completely relate. Some days, the words just won’t come. I love the way you express your “nothing to say.”

    Ha! You know I’ve done this for the last few years, but I don’t think I can quite stand the name Napowrimo. I’ve done Nanowrimo too, and don’t mind that name, but Napowrimo is somehow an unfortunate title. Something perhaps for a limerick. K.

    By done this, mean draft poem a day. They were some pretty rough. K.

  14. Well, you’re off to a good start! :-D
