How to write a limerick

  1. 1. How to Write A Limerick <br />By Julia Waldinger<br />
  2. 2. What is a Limerick?<br />A limerick is a funny little poem containing five lines. It has a very distinctive rhythm and rhyme pattern.<br />
  3. 3. Rhyme Pattern<br />The last words of the first, second, and fifth lines all rhyme with each other. We’ll call those rhyming words “A,” however the words could be “ Peru,” “shoe,” and “true” as illustrated in the first poem below or “Tim,” “swim,” and “him” as illustrated in the second poem below. And the last words of the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other. We’ll call those rhyming words “B,” however the words could be “night” and “fright” in the first example or “dock” and “rock” in the second example.<br />
  4. 4. Rhythm Pattern<br />The first, second, and fifth lines all have this rhythm pattern: da DUM dada DUM dada DUM (notice there are 3 DUMS or beats). Say, “There once was a fellow named Tim” out loud. Now say, “da DUM dada DUM dada DUM” out loud. Notice that both have the same rhythm. The third and fourth lines have a different rhythm pattern: da DUM dada DUM (notice there are 2 DUMS or beats). Say, “He fell off the dock” out loud. Now say “da DUM dada DUM” out loud. Notice that both have the same rhythm. <br />
  5. 5. Example<br />There was an old man from Peru, (A) da DUM dada DUM dada DUM (3 DUMS) <br />who dreamed he was eating his shoe. (A) da DUM dada DUM dada DUM (3 DUMS) <br />3) He awoke in the night (B)da DUM dada DUM (2 DUMS) <br />4) with a terrible fright, (B)dada DUM dada DUM (2 DUMS) <br />5) and found out that it was quite true. (A) da DUM dada DUM dada DUM (3 DUMS)<br />
  6. 6. Tips<br />When you write a limerick, make sure that it has the same AABBA rhyme pattern. Make sure it also has the same 3 DUMS, 3 DUMS, 2 DUMS, 2 DUMS, 3 DUMS rhythm pattern, too. To be sure, recite the poem, substituting “da” for all unaccented or unstressed syllables and “DUM” for all accented or stressed syllables, as I have done above. If your poem doesn’t have a similar rhythm pattern, then you need to make some adjustments.<br />
  7. 7. Ideas<br />Ideas for new limericks can come from almost anywhere. For example, your city, state, country, or name. If your name is Tim or Jim, you could write something like this:<br />A Clumsy Young Fellow Named Tim<br />There once was a fellow named Tim (A) <br />whose dad never taught him to swim. (A) <br />He fell off a dock (B) <br />and sunk like a rock. (B) <br />And that was the end of him. (A) <br />
