We know that all children enjoy reading or learning interesting and funny poems and verses. We`ve made up our mind to offer them a small selection of limericks. Do you know what a limerick is? A limerick is a silly poem. Limericks are often funny and don`t possess any serious implications. Their purpose is to entertain and bring smile; most limericks start with the line «There once was a...». Limericks were created by Edward Lear at the end of the 18th century. They are fun little poems consisting of five lines, very easy to write. The first, second and fifth lines rhyme with each other and have the same number of syllables (typically 8 or 9). The third and fourth lines rhyme with each other and have the same number of syllables (typically 5 or 6). So, kids, if you try, you`ll be able to write your own limericks. This selection of St. Patrick`s Day limericks will help you. Study them, use a bit of imagination and diligence and you`ll feel like creators of limericks writing your own ones. Besides, the creative process will bring you a lot of pleasure and satisfaction. Start and you`ll succeed! Good luck!

There was an Old Man with a Beard

by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, «It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.”

St. Patrick's Day Limericks

by Leanne Guenther

There once was a clover named Kate,
Who sat on the edge of a plate,
The fancy folk dined,
On foods of all kind,
Then tossed her at quarter past eight.

There once was a shamrock named Pat,
Who tripped on a root and went splat,
She ripped her best leaf,
And sobbed in her grief,
And ruined her favorite hat.

There once was a shamrock named Shawn,
Whose leaves first unfurled in the dawn,
He was easily seen,
With his bright leaves of green,
Right up ‘til the day he was gone.
