The Girl Who Slept

There was once a girl who loved to sleep
Each day she slept on for hours, long and deep.
And then suddenly, the exams were drawing near,
She found herself trembling in fear.
She looked at her books and began to weep.

This is my very first attempt at writing a limerick. And the girl in this limerick could well be me, unfortunately. I'm nearly done with my exams, but, still have one more to go, and like one of my friends said, all I can ask anyone who cares to listen is 'Why this kolaveri di?' :P

  3. A nice one, Shruthi... I love limericks and dabble in them quite often. Normally the 3rd and 4th lines are shorter than the 1st, 2nd and 5th. Here's one for you:

    The poetic form called limerick,
    Is kind of funny and eccentric;
    Rhyming aabba,
    Sounding light and gay,
    With lines which are always anapaestic!


    Krishnasruthi is a girl
    With creativity that does unfurl
    In her sonnet and limerick
    Her art is kinetic
    She really can give it a whirl!

  5. @Sumitra, hahaa I'm glad it's relate-able, so I'm not the odd one out :)
    @Raj, thanks a lot! :)
    @Viji ma'am, whoa, a limerick for me!!! I'm truly humbled ma'am- your encouragement means a lot for me. Shall definitely keep in mind the tips when I try limericks again later :)
    @CS, soo true! :D
