Ten Foot Yellow Train

Julia Roberts - The Run Away Bride Had a dog Fido - loved water slides He lifted his leg Yellow train - an egg The bride disappeared hurt in her pride... Fido's bright smile showed whites of Colgate When Lady appeared sealing his Fate Human wedding planned On a doggies' land Long Live bride's old Pop and his charge plate! Inspired by Carolyn Devonshire's limerick "Runaway Train" An outdoor wedding, no sign of rain The bride’s gown had a 10-foot train Crossing the lawn to her bequeathed Fido snatched the train in his teeth And Pop watched eight grand go down the drain

A special thanks to you Iolanda, for the extra effort, you went through to find a poem and get permission from it owner. Your double limerick was a special poem in it's own right, and deserves all honors. Congratulations on your place. Agape, Moses
