Becky’s Limerick: Reluctantly I Leaped

014

Tis Monday and a fresh start of a new week

And, reluctantly, I rolled and leaped to my feet.

I gazed at the busy day ahead

With anticipation and some dread.

A wintry chill in the morning air; not so sweet.

Poetry 201 Day 4: Imperfect, Limerick, and Enjambment

Imperfect Journey

One bright

morning, I

ventured on a

long

autumn drive

To see

the vibrantly

changing

trees

along

the

riverside.

But this once

blissful

and

carefree

day was

marred

by

closed

lanes on

the highway

As rows of

cars

became

stuck, unable

to

move;

just

sitting

side by

side.

Another Limerick Just for Fun

053

 

Well, after some more contemplating,the little kid inside of me got all stirred up and, consequently, another limerick came to mine. This one contains a journey and an alliteration but is quite silly. However, I did have fun writing it as I imagined a happy little boy hopping and skipping down the street:

Jumping Joey

Jumping Joey went on a journey

Jolly jumping down Juniper Alley.

Joey was so jolly;

He jumped up, my golly

and jolly jumped back home eating jelly.

Poetry 201 Assignment 2: Limericks, Journey, and Alliteration

Okay, I am in day two of this poetry class and our assignment is to write a limerick containing a journey and alliteration. Limericks are known to be humorous and writing humor is quite a challenge for me. And composing one limerick with a journey and alliteration was a bit much so I wrote two separate limericks to accomplish this assignment. One focuses on a journey I once embarked on while the other limerick as an attempt at a more humorous alliteration. Do you think I completed the assignment correctly? I will say, I had fun creating these two short poems and I hope you enjoy them.

 

Surprising Journey

One day I began a journey

When it was cold and blustery

In the sky I gazed

And was quite amazed

To see a sundog watching me

 

Bessie Boo

Bessie Boo bought ballerina shoes

Dyed in black and blinding blue

She met a bashful knight

Who could not dance just right

And banged her toes all black and blue
