Steppin' Out

There once was a man of Benares
who often danced with fairies
they taught him many steps
so he would be as adept
as a woman he one day marries.

Then an elf in a green wig
appeared out of nowhere, real big
scaring the man so he stumbled
his feet growing ever more jumbled
watching the elf begin a jig.

The fairies did twitter and squeal
while the elf continued to reel
and the man of Benares
stood shocked and embarrassed
and didn't know what to feel.

So he wandered of by himself
leaving the fairies and elf
and went looking for a wife
who'd never danced in her life
and kept his steps on a shelf.

    There once was a poet named Mason ; And a little green man , she went chasin' ; But one sunny day ; He sang Tooralay ; And made a Leprecaun peee in her basin .... Clever Limericks , as ever , Sue , so write onnnn ....

    Hey Sue thanks for alerting me to the typo! This one was kind of silly but in a fun way and I enjoyed reading it. I just saw another fairy poem. Is it fairy week or something? LUv, andrea

    Aw he had to stop dancing. That is a shame I have never tried to do a limerick so will have to look at the form. Have a great day. God Bless Phyl

    Althoug this is not a Limerick - as one I wrote before, too, as a Limerick must be shorter. But these are definately five Limericks! I enjoyed reading your poetry today, Sue! Actually I did not enter "Most valuable Things" to Farah's competition as I did not know about ist, otherwise I would have done so. Keep on writing--enjoying your poetry...Gert

    I admire you. I have a terrible time writing limericks. Enjoyed mucho. Yep! Carolyn's novel on Atlantis is a real page turner. Love, daver

    Very cool poem, Sue! Guess the man decided that doing the "dance" of fantasy was not for him and he needed a real woman. Love, Carolyn
