Limerick-a-Day: No. 60

A little piece, written in strange times. My daily limericks were written in response to Covid-19, the restrictions put in place and their effect on everyday life. Now, as the restrictions have  been relaxed I feel today’s poem will be the last in the series. Many thanks to all of you  who have read them and offered such warm encouragement, something for which I will be forever grateful. Stay Safe!


Music, lovely music has been a friend
In these strange days, without an end
Listen and ponder
Of what lies yonder
Better times with, no need to pretend

*********************

Limerick – what’s it all about?

It’s only five lines, no words to waste
So let’s begin, as we must make haste
The idea to rhyme
Time after time
The rhythm is good, a limerick’s fine taste

Limerick-a-Day: No. 59

A little piece, written in strange times


‘TV is nothing, there’s no sport to see’
Said a friend isolating, unhappy to be
No ‘Match of the Day’
No decisions to sway
Reopening a blessing, for him and me

Limerick-a-Day: No. 58

A little piece, written in strange times


Mowers, strimmers, in the gardens abuzz
A change from the silence, it certainly does
No haircut since Lent
Its state I repent
Must get my barber, to deal with this fuzz

Don Cameron 2020

Out of control...

Out of control…

Limerick-a-Day: No. 57

A little piece, written in strange times


A gentle breeze, blew in from the sea
Its cool air tangy, filling with glee
A coffee is fine
Just like old time
B’fore a big ice cream, was handed to me

Don Cameron 2020

Now, that's a big ice cream

Now, that’s a big ice cream

Limerick-a-Day: No. 9

A little piece, written in strange times


Call them heroes, and nothing less
Are doing great work, we confess
Righteous they foil
Each day they toil
Resulting daily, in needy progress

Limerick-a-Day: No.3

A little piece, written in strange times

—————————————————————–

No walks in the park, or on the strand
The joys of life, now sadly banned
They’ll come a new
For me and you
And that day will be, ‘Oh so grand’.

The Dumpster

It’s all ‘flake news’ when it comes to Dump

Everything – from slump to hump 

With index and thumb

His race is run

Believe me, he’s going to jump!!!!
