Dalliance With Delay (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 11th, 2021

In case you’re wondering, Mark has NEVER had to say this to me:

Please don’t dally; you’re wasting our time.
We are late, so stop playing with rhyme.
Stare at RhymeZone tonight,
Or we’ll miss our damn our flight.
Let’s leave while I’m still in my prime.

Self-Assessment (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

At athletics I’m sorely pathetic.
I’m noetic; I guess it’s genetic.
Writing rhyme’s more my speed.
Lim’ricks rule! That’s my creed —
My addictive aesthetic poetic.

Hooked On Rhyming (Limerick)

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

I’m a rhymer, a limerick drafter,
A chronic light-poetry crafter.
I’ve been labeled a “card,”
And called “daft,” but not “bard.”
What’s my target? Grins, giggles, and laughter.

The Crime Of “Near Rhyme” (Limerick)

Monday, September 28th, 2015

When trying to rhyme, a dead end
Just might daunt you and tempt you to bend
Lim’rick rules just a bit,
Giving sticklers a fit.
Don’t descend to near rhyming. Forfend!

No Reason For Rhyme? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’ve been censured and cautioned to spurn
Burning yearnings to rhyme, as I learn
How to coax some haiku
Into being, but few
Have earned kudos. My critics are stern.

Just One More… (Limerick)

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

I’m attempting to check my temptation
To engage in non-stop rhyme creation.
“Buckle down,” my muse cries.
“Make them chuckle! Revise!”
Quick demise to my lim’rick vacation.

Beauty Ain’t My Thing
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’ve been told to write verse filled with beauty
Stuff that some folks call snooty or fruity.
But my talent is rhyme,
And to ask for “sublime”
Is for me a ridiculous duty.

A Rhyme For All Seasons (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

No matter the time or the season,
I will conjure up rhymes for no reason.
And haiku ain’t immune;
They are often rhyme-strewn,
Although many view rhymes there as treason.

Passing Over Some Rules (Limerick)

Passing Over Some Rules (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Though I’m Jewish, I’m still eating bread
And refuse to munch matzo instead.
I spurn rules all the time,
Except canons of rhyme
And of meter … so don’t be misled.
