Writing Prompt #25

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I hope you are having a lucky day, and that you've found a leprechaun at the end of a rainbow somewhere.

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than to write a limerick?

Not sure what the rules of a limerick are? Here are the basics:

  • Five lines

  • Humorous

  • First, second, and fifth lines must rhyme

  • First, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables

  • Third and fourth lines must rhyme

  • Third and fourth lines must have five to seven syllables

There are some more rules with rhythms, but the above are the starting rules of limericks.

Here is a classic example. You may have heard it before:

Hickory dickory dock,

The mouse ran up the clock.

The clock struck one,

And down he run.

Hickory dickory dock.

Good luck, and have fun!
