Poetic Form: Limericks

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The limerick is a five-line poem consisting of a three rhyming lines split by a couplet. The first, second, and fifth lines rhyme, while the third and fourth lines rhyme but tend to be shorter. There is not a precise syllable count per line, but the norm is about 8-10 syllables in the longer lines and around 6 syllables in the shorter lines. Limericks often have a connotation for being naughty or dirty. They don’t necessarily have to be but they should hopefully be playful.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
