Happy Limerick Day (and Edward Lear’s Birthday) (May 12)

My lim’rick obsession’s severe;
I write rhymes night and day ev’ry year.
My addiction is brutal.
Resistance is futile…
And I warrant the fault lies with Lear.

Happy birthday, Edward Lear, and Happy Limerick Day!

    Flawless and lovely Madeleine – made me smile…

    Your verses go round in my head
    And at night they stay with me in bed
    Mindfulness rather failed
    To grant peace unassailed
    So I just thought I’d post this instead. ;O)
