Miamohalla’s Favorite Fun-Time Limericks

Miamohalla’s Favorite Fun-Time Limericks

May 12, 2020

Today is National Limerick day!  Every May 12th is National Limerick day because it’s Limerick master Edward Leer’s birthday.  Limericks are fun poems with a AABBA rhyme scheme.  Below are some of our favorite Limericks that are sure to make you giggle.


Old Lady of France by Edward Leer


There was an old lady of France, 

Who taught little ducklings to dance;

When she said, “Tick-a-tack!”

they only said, “Quack!”

Which grieved that old lady of France.



The Lost Cat by Shel Silverstein


We can’t find the cat.

We don’t know where she’s at.

Oh, where did she go?

Does anyone know?

Let’s ask this walking hat.



Owl Named Stu by Anonymous


I know this big owl named Stu,

Who stays up all night yelling, “Hoo!”

Once an old man walked by

And he started to cry,

And answered, “I don’t have a clue!”



By Activity Village


There once was a lady called Tilly

Her favorite supper was chili

She ate it with jam,

Green onions and ham, 

A mixture that’s really quite silly!



There was an Old Man with a Beard by Edward Leer


There was an Old Man with a beard,

Who said, “It is just as I feared!--

Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,

Have all built their nests in my beard.



Fly on the Wall by Anonymous


There once was a fly on the wall

I wonder why it didn’t fall

Because its feet stuck 

Or was it just luck

Or does gravity miss things so small?
