It Was billybuc, I'm Sure


Suddenly he knocked on my door.

A man I had never met before.

How could he be able

to sit at my dinner table?

It was billybuc, I'm sure.



I could not find a word to say.

I was afraid he wouldn't stay.

This humble man

with a beautiful tan

left when the night turned into day.

Hmm, I found this funny and interesting, however, I must admit, curious. We all know Billy's a great guy and a really great writer but now I'm wondering if there's something going on we don't know about and oh, poor Beth (kidding of course).

Nicely done Made, though a familiar subject not one we usually see in such a talented poem!

Voted up, funny, and interesting.

tillsontitan, I guess my dream told me I need to spend more time on HubPages. If I don't, the hubbers will haunt me in my dreams, lol! Thank you so much for your supportive and funny comment. :)

Sheez, I didn't even bring a gift? What kind of guest am I? Pardon my rudeness, Made; I will do better in the next dream. lol

Thank you my dear....I have to go check out my tan now; I fear it is starting to fade with the rains. :)

Nice job with the limerick my dear; you have more courage than I have because I have never tried to write one.

You are as sweet as ever, and maybe one day we will meet in person and you will find something to say. :)

Have a wonderful weekend Made!

Bill. my friend from far away, I was like paralysed last night, lol! It was nice to meet you, but I wasn't really prepared that you would show up. I really appreciate that you stopped by - both here and in my dream. :) I will be working all weekend and spend my next week in school. Have a great weekend you too!!!

What fun, I often dabble with the concept of including all the great people of met on hubpages into a short story or some other form of writing. Well done.

Hi Jon, thank you for stopping by. I like to read about other hubbers. It inspires me. I really need to visit you here on HubPages to see what you have written lately. Thank you! :)

Hmmmmm....... is there more to Billy than what I thought? I know he is a wonderful teacher, provides a wealth of information and always gives support and encouragement but this extremely short passage leaves the reader with many questions.

Intriguing and wonderful limerick to instill the guessing game.

Mhatter, that's a kind comment from the master of limericks. I have never written a limerick before. I couldn't get the message out in only one limerick, so I had to write two in a row. Thank you!

epi, you are so kind to these two women from northern Europe. I don't feel talented at all. I'm just as ordinary as anyone, but thank you. You know how to make me smile and your twin is just as wonderful as you are, epi. :) Thanks!

So very sweet Made! Too bad Billy had to leave in such a hurry. He missed out on a hearty Finnish breakfast. Great limericks my friend. Voted up and funny. Kram!

Hi Break of Dawn, I agree, he should have stayed a little longer and enjoyed some Finnish breakfast. Thank you! Kram. :)

How interesting! Limericks are challenging to write, and this one is awesome. Kind of cool that you met Bill in your dream. You must have spent a lot of time on Hubpages that day or something? Or maybe he represents hubpages and your subconcious thinks you should spend more time here, haha.

Anyway, awesome poem Made, thanks for sharing!

Hehe, I know this gave Bill a giggle. Oh, I could see his gentle spirit just shining through in your words. Nice job!

Farmer Rachel, I have not written any limericks after this one, but I probably will. I guess I had been spending so much time reading Bills hubs that he started haunting me in my dreams, lol! Now I hardly spend any time here. I really want to, but my work and my studies take too much time at the moment. Thank you so much Rachel. :)
