Daily Quote: May 12, 2020

They dined on mince,
and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon.
~Edward Lear (English – ArtistMay 12, 1812 – January 29, 1888)


Limerick Day


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.
~ Edward Lear

The example above written by Edward Lear is a Limerick.  Limericks follow the rhyme pattern of AABBA, so although the Daily Quote was also written by Edward Lear, it isn’t an example of a Limerick.
