Five Great Limerick Guys

Caleb Smith, southern gent so refined, has an interesting, humorous mind. He not only can write, but can farm, fish and fight, and on critters he hunts he has dined! Also clever at limericks is Tim. He does footles for friends on a whim. The bright bulb in his brain comes on time and again. May Tim Ryerson’s light never dim. A third limerick writer, Mike Dailey, has some fifty of them we can see! Though I don’t know him well, by his poems I can tell that a doting grandfather is he. There are oodles of limericks by Jack. Sheer wit our dear Horne does not lack. But his vampire obsession can leave a gal guessin’. . . Am I friends with a maniac? In praise of the Duke I now sing. All his poetry has that cool “ring” - a limerick each one - making Beauford- bar none - The PoetrySoup limerick king! *A SHOUT OUT also to five OTHER great limerick guys: Sean Kelly, Charles Sides, Charles Clive, Harry Horsman, and Robert Hinshaw & Soupers, Let me know of any other limerick guys out there I should know about! For : Sandy Ivy D's Poem of Dedication Contest

    I greatly admire you limerick composers. I've tried it myself and, duh, am a total washout. Love, daver

    I don't read limericks often, but I thought this tribute was well thought out. Read some of Tim Ryerson's work and though he's somewhat nutty, he's very witty! Hahah... nicely done Andrea :)

    Reads like a winner for the contest ...I don't know which ones are great at Limerick's though..Thanks for stopping by..It might be too cold or salty in Utah for Violets..I used to grow some inside..Those were African Violets though..They are a lot of work..My mother-in-law had an outside cultivated Violet and she gave me some off it when we moved here..I have kept it all these years..It is a deep purple color..The wild ones in my yard are Lavender and white..Sara

    If you type in on your search engine "pictures of wild violets in lawn", there will be pictures of the light colored ones that are in my yard..Sara
