A friend, motivated by my poem a day during Poetry Month, decided to do a limerick a day during May. More power to him! He’s sharing them with a few of us, but I don’t think he’s putting this online. If he does, I’ll link to it. But his limericks inspired me to do a few. Here’s one of them.

Young Sam thought it good to be witty,
He wrote with a twist and a ditty,
So bad was his wit,
That his mom bid him quit,
And everyone cried, “He’s a pity!”

My granddaughter’s name is Eden. She went to the zoo on Saturday. So here’s my poem of the day for her. That’s her pic below, taken at the zoo.

My granddaughter went to the zoo,
For hippos, giraffe, kangaroo;
She growled at the bears, caught the lion unawares,
But never saw Winnie the Pooh.
