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

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.
