A LIMERICK, as you probably know already, is a five-line poem written with one couplet and one triplet. If a couplet is a two-line rhymed poem, then a triplet would be a three-line rhymed poem. The pattern of the rhyme is a - a - b - b - a with lines 1, 2 and 5 containing 3 beats and rhyming, and lines 3 and 4 having two beats and rhyming

eg:
There was a young lady named Kite

Whose speed was much faster than light.

She left home one day

In a relative way

And returned on the previous night.


Can we come up with a crazy 'non stop' one for New Yr?
:P

.....

There was this girl called Shelly

Who loved to eat loads of Jelly

It was last December

If I can remember

That she started growing a belly

She'd married in May
On a warm sunny Day
His name was Jason Lear
and he always wished her Happy New year
she wasn't to know he wouldn't stay

He left in July
didn't tell her why
That's when poor Shelly
started eating her Jelly
and needed a constant supply

Then that New Year's eve
She met young Steve
He loved eating Jelly
and said what a huge belly
And promised he'd never leave

Very happy was our Shelly
With Steve eating her Jelly
till one day to their Joy
Out of her popped a baby boy
And gone was Shelly's Belly

Akanksha  Singh (akankshasingh92) | 122 comments They had a huge party at their place,
where they invited newborns of every race,
Much to shelly's joy,
he turned out to be the cutest boy,
with a gurgling laugh and a pretty face.
And won every race.

Mansee The boy was lovingly named "Pi"
He was the apple of everyone's eye
coz he gave the sweetest smile to one and all
and people arond him always had a ball
they never had the heart to wish him goodbye

Pi grew into an adorable lad
Never ever was he bad
One Summer day so bright and fine
Young Pi helped put pegs on the clothes line
Making Shelly proud and glad

Mansee Young Pi excelled at every game
Without him, a game was never the same
Lot of young girls thus had thier eyes on him
He was the hero in many a gal's dream
Oh - what a fine fellow was Pi!

1st,2nd, last rhyme....3rd and 4th rhyme ...in limmericks

Young Pi excelled at every game
Without him, a game was never the same
Lot of young girls thus had their eyes on him
He was the hero in many a gal's dream
They were drawn to him like moths to a flame
----- --------- ----------- ----------------
Although our young hero was a Lion at play
and could not quite keep the girls away
He was quite hesitant and shy
Pi's fans could only try and try
to somehow get his attention each Valentine's Day

Their attempts always proved to be lame
but love is about trying not about blame
Finally came along a pretty lass called Sally
who joined Pi's cricket game in the alley
and from then Pi's life was never ever the same :-)

They kept meeting at cricket that way
Till a sudden downpour stopped the game that one day
Pi realized with sudden wonder excitement and joy
the subtle differences between a girl and a boy
and soon things went pleasantly astray

Sally was pretty and a very affectionate dame
Pi's heart and mind could no longer remain tame
She noticed the change in him
and gently coaxed out the man from within
Soon he could express his love without any shame
