A Limerick for Lara

[Dedicated to my niece, Lara.]

There was a young lady called Lara
She dreamt of adventure at Tara
Then one day right at dawn
With the wind she was gone
To double for Scarlett O’Hara.

Oh how I love this limerick, especially as Gone with the Wind was one of my favorite movies. Another was Dr. Zhivago, love the old classics, and named my daughter Lara. I will show her this limerick of yours. Thanks for sharing.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it, Maria! Also pleased to note that your daughter is called Lara;maybe she'd like to adopt my Limerick, too:) The old classics will never die; I really enjoyed Dr. Zhivago. Regards ~ paul

This is excellent in form, delivery and content. The playful manipulation of words is witty and clever, I'm sure Lara must have been wearing a smile after reading this. Emile.
