May 12th is National Limerick Day! So, get your Edward Lear on (he popularized limericks in the 1800s) and celebrate by reading and writing limericks.
Limericks have five lines. The fifth line rhymes with the first two and the third rhymes with the fourth. All you have to do is follow the structure, and you’ll have a limerick before you know it. Check out this library-inspired limerick below and click here for other limericks to read.
There is a most famous librarian.
Whose name, no surprise, is Marian,
She stands smiling and steady,
Her date stamp at the ready,
To check out books her patrons are carryin'!
