What is a limerick?


I had to Google this, to make sure if I even knew what a limerick was exactly, as this is my first attempt.


I thought of it after Mhatter (the king of limericks) left a comment about mirrors and beautiful reflective light in the home. You know I love you Mhatter, as a Sister in Christ.


A limerick is a five-line poem, with a funny punch, humorous twist, and 13-beat rhythm.


First, one must notice both the rhyme and rhythm patterns, i.e.,


da DUM da da DUM da da DUM (3 DUMS) (A)

da DUM da da DUM da da DUM (3 DUMS) (A)

da DUM da da DUM (2 DUMS) (B)

da DUM da da DUM (2 DUMS) (B)

da DUM da da DUM da da DUM (3 DUMS) (A)


When you write a limerick, make sure that it has the same AABBA rhyme pattern, and make sure it has the same 3 DUMS, 3 DUMS, 2 DUMS, 2 DUMS, 3 DUMS rhythm patterns too.


I am already so confused - DUM DUM! Ha. I know I do not have the rhythm pattern down.


My Very First Attempt


Well, here it goes, and it may not only be my first limerick, but my last one as well!



You, a self-confessed egotist,

In your comment you did enlist.

No hat on your dome

Does more for your home

Than mirrors alone, I insist!



I am sorry. Forgive me Mhatter!

      billybuc - thanks so much, as I just could not resist with the comment he posted about not being able to have mirrors in his house as he is egotistical. I hope he knows I am just messing with him. I had written two other versions, and realized I had to edit to be in the correct rhyme. I appreciate you. Have a lovely evening.

      LOL, I like the line, 'I am already confused, DUM DUM!', hahahaha that is hilarious! I know, I know, that is not part of the poem..... I am just like you when it comes to Limerick, at least you wrote one, I am afraid to try it! I don't understand this da da DUM DUM stuff!

      It came out great, just right for MHatter! lol

Well, I am glad I am not the only one who had to Google it, and the da da DUMS may be the real hit as a prelude to the limerick. They seemed to generate a lot of laughter. May be a limerick on rhymn pattern would have just been fine alone. Ha. I appreciate you, and I hope you have a great day. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hello Mhatter,

      Well I have to confess I am at a loss what a limerick entails but I did learn something today and for that I am thankful. You are so funny and I loved this hub and the detailed instructions you gave for all of us who may be scratching our heads thinking,"How in the world do you write a limerick?" I just got the Haiku down..One day I may get brave enough to give it a try. I am like Faithreaper love the da da dums...I think I may can do that one..hehe

      Have a great day,

      Sunnie

      Hello again Sunnie Day - That is funny, as it is Faith Reaper again, but a tribute to Mhatter. I understand, as I had to Google it myself, and the same with the Haiku, which I had to go back and tweak when I wrote my first Haiku. This limerick actually had two other drafts, but then after having researched the patterns, I had to scrap those drafts to attempt to get the correct rhyme and pattern going. It really is not an easy task to try to correctly write one, and I do not know if I have, but at least we all seemed to have fun reading the da da DUM DUMS. Ha. The true expert on writing limericks is Mhatter. He is awesome. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Great limerick, Faith. I am still laughing. What is nice about this hub is you explain how to write a limerick and you have done it so well. Mhatter may be the king of limericks, but you are now the queen of limericks. Keep writing - you need to give him some competition!

      Hello Audrey - so good to see you here, and I really appreciate your comment. I have a long way to go yet on limericks, but they are fun and do seem to generate a lot of laughter, which is good medicine! I believe it was all the da da DUMS that really stole the show on this limerick, instead of the actual limerick. Ha. But that is okay, as it made it even more fun, with that crazy pattern one has to "attempt" to follow just to write a limerick. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      OMG, am I doing it wrong? It's my first time too, Faith and just like you, I looked up the meaning coz I wasn't really sure if I had come across it when I was in school, BUT as I read the description of a limerick you added on this hub, I have not encountered the "13-beat rhythm" during my search of understanding what a limerick poem is! I think my 1st limerick is a mistake, heheh, geez! Perhaps I should take it out until I examine and fix it. So, instead of the 3-3-2-2-3 dum dum hahaha, I am using my fingers as 8-8-5-5-8. I'm glad to come across this from your comment on your other hub.

      Thanks, Faith Reaper! Funny hub and cute limerick! Good job. Don't make it your last.

      coffeegginmyrice - Both the limerick and haiku are difficult for me as well. I know what you mean about having a lot of thoughts to put down!!! I normally have to do three drafts before the final draft on the limerick or haiku, just to attempt to get the best words with less words. I loved your limerick, so very funny. Very well-done.

I was a little afraid for a bit, then he showed up and like a true gentleman, was so kind. I believe the true star of this hub is the pattern of the DUM DUMS lol. Now I am cracking up again. DUM DUM

      So great to see you here. Yes, Mhatter is the best of the best at limericks no doubt! I love reading his work, as his writing is so very clever and funny as far as limericks go, and his poetry is always so very passionate and beautiful too.

      I thought of the idea (as may be obvious) when Mhatter left a comment on one of my hubs about his being an egotist and, of course, I could not resist!

      I am so humbled by your lovely comments here this day.

      This left me with a big grin to start off my day! I think you captured the limerick quite well! Please don't let this be your last!

      Hi No Clue,

      So great to see you stopping by to read. I am glad this made you smile this day. I appreciate the kind words. It may be time for another limerick here shortly. Mhatter was a good sport about this one no doubt!

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Clap, clap, clap! That was cute! I'm surprised you haven't written another, the first went over so well with everyone, including me. Mhatter is great with the limerick, but good guy that I think he is, I'm sure he doesn't mind your company.

      Thanks for providing the rhythm of the limerick.

      Hi Cyndi,

      Thanks so much and I am glad you enjoyed my first limerick. I have a couple more I did after this one.

      Yes, Mhatter is the best at limericks no doubt, but I have to give it a go. I never knew what a limerick was until I met Mh! haha

      I appreciate the kind words here and your visit.

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Had to read this one too Faith....good tribute to Martin, and a fun limerick. Well done. You have been writing them months longer than me. I hope you write more.

      Glad you found this one too, John! There is a story behind this one as Mh had made a comment on my mirror hub about being an egotist LOL, so I had to try to write my first limerick about his funny comment on that other hub.

      I think the da da DUMS were more of a hit than the limerick itself. I remember it being a fun night of laughter and the comments coming in so fast, that I could hardly keep up and we were all laughing so hard on the pattern of a limerick and the da da DUMS and me saying about myself DUM DUM ...lol

      Thank you for reading here this night. This is the one I tried to highlight, but it did not show up on my drop down list for some reason, although it is a featured hub?

      I do need to get writing here as I have been away too long to not publish. I love trying my hand at limericks as they do bring a lot of joy and laughter, which this world certainly need more of no doubt.

      Blessings
