Limerick – Homonyms

A great big spider dropped from the grate
And sat and spied her as she ate
Without batting her eyes
She batted some flies
Sharing them with her friend with legs eight!



I found this challenge really tough… Took me ages to get going. The challenge was to write a limerick using homonyms. Of course, once I got into it I threw a bunch in there…!

I know there are those that can’t stand spiders… I tried to use the least threatening picture of one that I could find! Hope this doesn’t freak anyone out… I found it here:

Limerick – Halloween (Part 1 !)

Halloween’s the best time of year
It fills me so full of cheer
There’s goblins and ghouls,
All manner of fools
Filling my neighbours with FEAR!



Written for my friend Judy, who asked for this… and rest assured, there will be more coming!

Seasons of Love – Limerick

It seems a conventional thing
But our courtship began in the spring
With chocolates and posies,
A dozen red roses
And brown paper gifts tied with string

In summer, the temperature rose
Which required the shedding of clothes
And it has to be said,
We spent days in bed…
Funny, the way that love grows.

Fall saw the first cracks appear
She’d cry when my family came near
And my very best friend
Drove her half round the bend
Which led to some fights and some tears

In winter the fights only got worse
And I started to think we were cursed
For all of that love
Just wasn’t enough
When your evenings are sullen and terse

Now, hindsight’s a wonderful thing
And it takes work to make a soul sing
But I’m not ready to quit…
I think she is “it”…
Let’s see what our second year brings

Limerick – Antonyms

Rashmi’s weekly limerick challenge is to use “antonyms” … here’s my contribution, sticking to my week’s Summer Lovin’ theme 🙂

My default is acting the fool,
Laughing and covered in drool
But I want to impress
This girl who’s the best
So now I’m playing it cool!
