Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I am having my usual corn beef and cabbage with potatoes. Because I like cornbread with with cabbage, I am including that as well. Now I have decide if I should go and get green beer or green tea.

I found some Limericks I thought I would share with you. Enjoy them as I did.

There was an Old Man with a beard
Who said, “It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard! By Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady of Dorking,
Who bought a large bonnet for walking;
But its colour and size,
So bedazzled her eyes,
That she very soon went back to Dorking. By Edward Lear

There was a Young Person of Crete,
Whose toilette was far from complete;
She dressed in a sack,
Spickle-speckled with black,
That ombliferous person of Crete. By Edward Lear

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill holds more than his belican.

He can take in his beak,

Enough food for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican. By Dixon Lanier Merritt

There was an old drunkard of Devon,
Who died and ascended to Heaven;
But he cried: ‘This is Hades-
There are no naughty ladies,
And the pubs are all shut by eleven. By Ron Rubin

There was a young lady of Lynn,
Who was so uncommonly thin
That when she essayed
To drink lemonade
She slipped through the straw and fell in. By Anonymous

This one I identify with as a writer.

Relentless, insatiable deadlines!
This manuscript’s still full of red lines.
First I’ll sweat through the edits
and check all the credits
then chill with my favorite red wine. By Monica Sharman

As I said, I hope you enjoyed these Limericks. I found them at https://examples.yourdictionary.com/limerick-examples.html, published by staff writer Matt Salter.

Until next time, stay safe and keep the faith as you enjoy St. Patrick’s Day.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
