Write a Limerick for National Limerick Day!

Buy Thinker: My Puppy Poet & Me


Happy National Limerick Day! Do you know how to write a limerick?

In a limerick the first, second and fifth lines have the same rhythm and rhyme. The third and fourth lines rhyme with each other too! So the limerick goes: AABBA! It’s easier than it sounds! Here’s an example:

There once was a small puppy poet,

Who was smart, and didn’t he know it!

My name is Thinker,

I’m a bit of a tinker,

Now write your own limerick! Go for it!

Now try it out yourself on the attached template!
