Pair of Limericks

Serious Limerick:
'Good day' my lone rosebud of June
I await your velvety bloom
Floribunda princess
Flower of finesse...
How sweet is your soothing perfume.

Humorous Limerick:
Jack knitted a new pair of socks
In the deep red colour of hollyhocks
His friends formed a queue
They wanted some too
But Jack fell ill with chickenpox.
Joyce Hemsley



Queen Elizabeth II

Forty word version:

The Union flag is flying
billowing on the breeze
above the beautiful roses
and England's old oak trees.

The reign of a royal lifetime
Elizabeth has seen it through.
Our Queen stands in glory
beneath the Red White and Blue.
Joyce Hemsley



Sally Daydream

Pretty Sally Daydream
was going to the Ball;
not thinking for a moment
that ice-cold snow may fall.
And like Lucy Gray before her
she wandered all alone,
but the path was very strange,
winding, and unknown.
With clothing dripping wet
and hairstyle hanging low,
she wept just as she stumbled
into the cold cold snow...
her frozen body lay there,
but unlike Lucy Gray
she was spotted by a shepherd lad
early the next day.

The death of Sally Daydream
was a shock to one and all;
and saddened were her friends
who'd been dancing at the Ball ~
for little Sally Daydream
set all the hearts afire...
as did that child Lucy Gray
who was missing in the mire.
Across the moor and mountain
still floated down the snow;
the weather more befitting
a Canadian Eskimo!
And the body of Sally Daydream
in the funeral limousine
slowly disappeared from view
into the arctic country scene.
Joyce Hemsley



Shine On

Forty words:

Venus shines above us
Lighting our way to mountain high.
We know Venus loves us
She's our diamond in the sky.
Venus lights the tundra
Is second planet from the sun
Closer, we discover
God's jewel is the precious one.
Joyce Hemsley
