"Celebrating" Limericks

Vacation, occasion, or holiday, any time is a good time for a limerick chuckle.

Training For New Year's Eve

I really believe in training,

even when it's raining.

I do it inside

and strengthen my pride,

so much it's become ingraining.


Thanksgiving's the best

out of all the rest,

Without it I would die,

and explode from pumpkin pie,

but each year I survive the test.


As for New Year's Eve,

I will not deceive,

it takes the whole year through,

and nothing less will do.

"Happy New Year!" to achieve.


[Sounds funny to folks though, when I'm practicing the shout while drinking at parties in August!]

Laborious Day

First Monday (not Sunday)

My most hated day,

September has come 'round again,

that day she waits for, and then

I labor, and labor, without any pay.

Heart's Delight....

that one day of the year, a day so dear.
that one day of the year, a day so dear. | Source

Frilly Card Day

Hearts and roses

Cards with prose's,

expressions, oh so true,

that end in "I love you,."

ones each $4.95 composes.



Going Fourth

I love celebrating.

It's almost like dating!

Especially the 4th of July,

which always ends with a sigh,

and fireworks glow dissipating.

Vacation Days

I'm down at the beach.

Each day is a peach.

The blanket is spread

in warm sunshine my "bed,"

and only the seagulls to screech.


Cats aren't the only ones who nap dreaming of the ocean's gentle roar. Could it be I snore?.

Ericdierker - Let's drop the "I" and make it the "funnest" time of the year.

I have never written a limerick, I leave it to the experts like you. I love the cat photo and caption, very sweet. These limericks should last me through the year.

I love limericks. I have written one a time or two and I will do so again, I will put it on my list of things to do.

Enjoyable Perspycacious.

aviannovice - Cheery grins, and thus begins, the wrinkles from our smiles.

Of all the rest, I think they're best, enjoyed on warm sea isles.

Shyron E Shenko - It's been a month now. How close is "Write a limerick!" getting to the top of your list? I could use a chuckle, too.
