    It has been over a year since I was at ES. I've written a LOT of poetry since then. I've been on other boards since then and now I'm back.

    Welcome back. I miss the forum. It was fun.

    I rarely visit Eliteskills nowadays and probably haven't thanked many people for their comments on the few poems I still have there. This is rude and remiss of me, so thank you very much for your time and comment on my poem "Celtic Warriors".

    Hey there Mae!

    Did u like my limerick? I checked out the websites, they were very useful.

    I "spoke" to a lady named Mae,
    And listened to what she did say,
    Then I pestered her twice,
    As I needed advice,
    'Cause Paddy was coming our way!

    Hurrah!

    Thanks for getting back again, re limericks.

    Yes, that does all make sense, and that is what I was told, so you also saying that helps a lot.

    So why is it that Wikipedia makes no mention of these rules? Strange.

    Also, I've seen a couple of examples of Lear's limericks and they don't seem to follow this structure - why is this?

    And I'm still a bit puzzled over lines 3 and 4. If it's 3 and 2 feet, then it would surely be 9 and 6 syllables...So where does the idea of 7 come from?

    Plus, "Hickory Dickory Dock" is a limerick, but this only has 4 in lines 3 and 4, and seems to break the pattern.

    Sorry to go on about this, I'm just trying to gain a better understanding of poetry, and your comments are very helpful!

    Cheers,
    Alex.

    Hey Mae,

    Sorry it's taken me ages to get back, 1st time I've logged on in 2 weeks.

    So, re the limerick thing: What does "anapestic" mean?

    Also, if I've got this right then, the limerick could start:

    "There once was a barber called TREVor"

    But not:

    "There once was a barber called TREV"

    Or:

    "There was a young lady from DURham"

    But not:

    "There was a young lady from KENT"

    So it has to end UP-down, as opposed to stopping abrupty? Have I got that right?

    Hope that all makes sense!

    Cheers,
    Alex
