A Day I Remember

Age six- I remember outside I saw something great I could ride We just had moved in Can still feel my grin When this big surprise I had eyed! Beside the barn building it stood I knew that my future looked good Considered the fun How fast it would run And take me 'round my neighborhood! Intentions to race down the lane Were greater than I could explain Asked daddy of course Could I ride that horse He laughed and said that's a Great Dane!

Hi Sandra, this is a delightfully fun work you have placed before us. Love the content of the Limerick. I don't know what it is, i just can't do this form. I appreciate those who can and do it well. You have definitely written this one well. It goes into my faves with the rest of the Limericks. Loved it. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs....Mike. XX
