Limericks for Thanksgiving

I have read in a few blogs about some writings of Limericks going around...now- I'm not sure whose idea it was and it's too late for me to go searching! :) Anyway, this is what I came up with tonight. Hope some of you find this and read it and get some smiles out of it!


Limericks for Thanksgiving

The turkey is stuffed and is browning!

The pies, with whip cream, get their crowning!

The potatoes are whipped

with the parsley fresh snipped...

Not one of our faces are frowning!

The cranberry sauce we did open...

this long held tradition - unbroken.

Our plates we hold ready!

The aroma is heady!

Our thanks for this feast have been spoken.

Thanks Peter,

I will visit there...

Just couldn't remember as I had seen the mention of writing the limericks on a few sites...

Had to get them down while they were fresh in my head! haha

Hey June :),

So glad you found me (the "brainchild" behind Pensieve's Poetic License...using the word "brainchild" very loosely, ha!), but more glad you offered a few of your own!

Thanks to Peter, too, for directing you my way :).

These are PERFECT! You're quite the poet. Perhaps you'll wanna try again next month when our poetic form will be cinquain (explanation will be provided to "educate" all of us about that form).

Happiest of holiday times to you and yours!

Hi Robin,

I love doing little poems and you will find them scattered throughout my blog(s) I have one blog (my side bar) that is devoted just to my poems...however-I more often just put them here on my # 1 blog as most ppl read just this one - I have found!

Yes, I'll check back next month and think of putting a poem up- if I have one that fits. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Enjoyed your limericks. Didn't Robin have a neat idea? Thanks for participating.

Yes- a real fun idea Robin had!

Now- I need to find the time to go read them all!

A "two-verse-er"! How cool!

Thanks for reading- Actually, it still seems a bit unfinished so I may add to it! haha

Okay, lets see if I can come up with a quick limerick.

There once was a turkey named Lucky
Who came to our house in Kentucky.
We chopped off his head
And ate him instead
Of the piglet we raised for our supper.

Cute Limerick, Sandy!

I used to do little poems like this for my kids when they were young!

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for coming by.

The writing of the limericks was a lot of fun, eh? I've enjoyed the reading of the ones written by everyone- yours too.
