Happy Limerick Day

May 12th is the birthday of english artist and author Edward Lear, who is known mostly for his nonsense poetry. It is also used to celebrate the Limerick.

I’m not nearly so talented as Mr. Lear but I attempted to write my own:


There once was a mom who liked reading,

but her boys she was busy feeding.

Finally they went to bed,

to rest their sleepy head,

and soon, the books call she was heeding.


Why don’t you try to write one, too?

Happy Reading (and writing)!
