Limericks for My Kitty Blanket

Updated on April 15, 2017

Children's need for security

goes beyond parental purity

monsters under their bed

scary stories once said

an object to provide surety.


Something to hold while they suck their thumbs

a blanket or toy to fight the glums

my daughter her blanky

to calm her when cranky

furry soft peaceful pastel that numbs.


For me a kitty blanket at foot

of my bed nicely folded and put

there to warm my cold feet

comfort for me to greet

comfortable memories are a foot.


At night through the darkness of my rooms

when I feel considerable glooms

always a friendly purr

and dreams of soft cat fur

midnight cats to fight evil that looms.

      Loved this Jamie--my kids fought off fears with singing and warm milk before bed--and lots of back rubbing--this brought back memories--

      I liked your limerick about the kitty blanket. My son always needed his security blanket at bedtime....

      I have owned this particular kitty blanket since 1994. There are holes but the kitties still stand guard. Thank you for all your kind comments and Happy Easter to those who celebrate. Jamie

      Oh, how I love these limericks. This reminds me of our kitty, Cici, who sleeps at my husband's feet. The kitties keep the elephants away, you know. We haven't had an elephant in our bedroom yet.
