Challenge: Write a Limerick for St. Patrick’s Day (or any other subject of your choice)

March 17, 2016

Field of clover in honor of St. Patrick's Day

Do you want to feel like you’re back in a Junior or Senior High School English class?  Did you love to write poetry as much as I did?  (Not).  Well, I challenge you to write a (stamping) limerick and post it as a comment (that little grey rectangular box in the upper right corner of this post).  This is a no-prize-contest and the winner will be féted tomorrow, March 18th.  Come on stampers……let’s have some fun.  And if you’ve created a hand stamped St. Patty’s card or other project, share it too.

I was clueless as to how to begin writing a limerick when I started this post (true statement) so I started with a Google search.  I checked out these two websites:

ehow:     http://www.ehow.com/how_3332_write-limerick.html

poetryamerica:     http://www.poetryamerica.com/Limerick.asp   (lots of side bar ads but really good rhyming information)

I managed and here’s mine:

THERE WAS ONCE A STAMPER NAMED BLYTHE

WHO WAS HAVING THE TIME OF HER LIFE.

SHE STAMPED ALL DAY LONG

AS SHE SANG A LOVE SONG:

“I LOVE WHAT I’M DOING ALL RIGHT!”

Please don’t judge me by my writing skill.  But it was fun.  I can’t believe (but maybe you can) that I wrote this ditty in less than ten minutes.  I took a little bit of tips from each of the websites above and the rest is history.

Now, let’s see some of your limericks or St. Patrick’s Day crafting:  card, 3-D, home décor.  Have some fun with this lighthearted holiday.
