    I had the same question and had to look it up. It's a short poem with 5 lines. The first, second, and last line all rhyme and are roughly the same length, and the third and fourth line rhyme and are shorter than the other three. Here's one by Edward Lear

    There was an old man with a beard
    Who said "It is just as I feared!
    Two owls and a hen,
    Four larks and a wren,
    Have all built their nests in my beard!"

    Here's my attempt at a limerick

    Once some students from Avon
    Had no snow days all season
    They said with glee
    "Come Spring there'll be
    Extra days off to play on!"

    Hey everybody!
    I hope everybody had a good mother's day weekend, I know I did! And I stink at poetry! I have only wrote one poem, I belive I posted on this forum site, too, and as you can tell if you read it, I'm not very good at it! And dance like a chicken day .... I'll have to tell my BFF's about that ..... they are very random and love doing random stuff with me .... LOL =].

    Ohh, Pretty good Celeste.

    I'm HORRID At Poetry, But could try?

    I LOVE FLYING KITES!! OMG.

    Once we went down to the football / soccer / whatever field By the Highschool (Just like a block away - lucky ducks we are.) With our neighbor's dogs. I, tied Scrappy up by the Pole, because he runs. And let Cleo(DeceasedD: ) Go free. She walked around, and played with my sister as we Flied the Triangle Pooh-bear kite. (Triangle "Kiddy" "None-fancy" Kites are best.) Guess what? I saw storm clouds coming In. "Better bring It In, -Name-" "Oh No, It wont be here for awhile! Were fine!" A few minutes later we saw lightning. We began to spaz, My sister went to Untie the dogs, She couldnt so she came over and dragged down the Kite as I untied them. (I do funny knots. lol. Only I know how to undo them. xD) Then I went back and helped her... Yeah... Not the best Idea >_____>"

    It was a Pretty bad storm. But We got them home safely, Shoved there cat In the door, tossed there Newspaper In aswell then ran home...witch was nextdoor. lol.

    So yup.

    Yeah.


    Heres a Poem? xD

    ---***---***---***---

    Sauce Of My Jocks?
    Orange Rhymes
    With Porange
    Blue Is Over Due.

    Thanks! That's actually what happened where I live this year. There was snow in almost every state around us, but we got none. So no snow days... but the kids did get extra days off school this spring!
    Flablo, I liked your poem. It made me giggle. I was talking with some folks the other day about different words that don't rhyme with anything (like orange and purple)!
