Spring Forward 2

There once was a seed in the ground Waiting for Spring to come around Her patience gave way Came up anyway Now she is frozen to the ground

Poor little seed! That's what she gets for being impatient...VERY funny stuff here Janet with perfect rhythm and meter as well. I think you have a winner here...

This is real cute and true too. The way our planet is warming, plants will start blooming earlier because the weather is warmer than normal for the time of year, and then a temperature drop freezes them overnight! A great Limerick Janet!

Oh yes you are getting it the rhythm is marvelous - now remember [especially for me it need not be a true rhyme] if you used CROWN you would not have to use ground twice! [Now she's frozen from tip to crown.] It took me years longer than you! You smarty pants! Light & Love

Very cute, Janet. But it does happen! Limericks are a lot of fun, and you seem to have mastered it. Hugs, Sandra

For a beginner in writing Limericks I must raise my hat to you (even if I don't have one!). Thus I give you a 7 rating. All the best, Janet. // paul

Thanks Andrea, I am not putting this in the contest because I am just learning how to do this and Debbie helped me to learn how it should flow. So would not be fair. But next time I will be they have a limerick contest I will be entering:) Janet

Janet. Would it be ok to just call me Ed? I used it for some kind of professional appearances. And it turns out I guess I ain't all that crazy about it after all lol. Thank you. P.S. I will answer to whatever you decide.
