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!]
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.
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.
I love celebrating.
It's almost like dating!
Especially the 4th of July,
which always ends with a sigh,
and fireworks glow dissipating.
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?.
Have you ever written a limerick?

A Seasonal Limerick
- Christmas Limerick
Modest expectations stand the best chance of being fulfilled! Be careful which stocking you choose to hang by the fireplace. Selfishness never was godliness.
Gratitude is appreciation expressed.
- A Haiku - Gratitude
Like going fishing, taking time to be grateful adds time to a long life made even better.
