To start you off on Limerick Day, I give you one Edward Lear limerick (above). You are welcome!
Named after the Irish city of Limerick, limericks are a type of verse form championed by Edward Lear and usually full of nonsense or fun…and some times a bit naughty.
If you want to celebrate this centuries old form of poetry, why not pick up a book of limericks and read them to your friends and family. Or make up some of your own!!
