According to DaysoftheYear.com, Limerick Day is held each year on May 12 to honor the birthday of Edward Lear, who popularized the short poems and named them after the Irish city of Limerick.
To celebrate the day, you’ll find some creations of our very own below — travel-themed, of course.
Today we’re writing a blog
About Shanghai and Tokyo and Prague.
How ’bout Barcelona?
You want to go, don’t ya,
To London, all shrouded in fog?
Australia’s a fun place to play,
But the trip takes almost all day.
So start in the morning,
But here’s a fair warning:
Your connecting flight’s on delay.
Why not head to the Equator,
Where you’ll lie on the beach till much later?
Be sure to use sunscreen.
The heat can be quite mean,
So ask for a drink from the waiter.
Bucket list places abound,
But they’re not that easily found.
And Egypt is dicey.
Maybe save them for next time around.
Now it’s time to start packing.
Make sure that nothing is lacking.
Camera and clothes
And a suitcase that rolls:
Check out our list, and get cracking.
We’d love to hear your travel limericks! Write your own, and post it in the comments below.
