CUPID NAMED LYLE

There once was a young Cupid named Lyle
who always aimed his arrow with style
with one shot straight as a dart
he hit me and pierced my heart
Aimed for a girl: he missed by a mile.

Inspired by poets who write in many different forms, I've had a go at writing my first ever limerick, which is totally out of my comfort zone.

After reading your last 2 "Limericks" I had to find the 3rd - well worth the trip to find it - you "Deffo" got this down to a art - more - more - more - please . . . : )

Sounds about like the kind of cupid I'd get. Re. It's a wonderful life. Where George says, You look about like the kind of angel I'd get to Clarence. Enjoy a good limy.
