    Limericks for March?

    On Facebook someone suggested instead of Haiku, in March we do Limericks!

    For those who aren't familiar it is generally fun:
    They are five lines long.
    Lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme with one another.
    Lines 3 and 4 rhyme with each other.
    They have a distinctive rhythm:
    They are often funny

    The rhythm is “anapestic,” an easy way to say it is:
    da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
    da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
    da DUM da da DUM
    da DUM da da DUM
    da DUM da da DUM da da DUM

    ****

    My initial contribution:

    My brain does not limericks do
    As nicely as it does haiku
    I'll try hard to play
    But won't promise each day
    So the rest will be up to all you!

    March is finally here
    But spring seems nowhere near.
    The snow and the cold
    Are getting quite old,
    I'd like to kick winter in the rear.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    It's funny that I wanted snow
    But southward the storm it did go
    I know some are weary
    Of grey winter dreary
    But even still, I love it so!

    It's march and it's started to snow
    The plows run at night, to and fro
    They slide and they slide
    Scrape the snow just outside
    And keep me awake, this I know.

    Jack Frost came to visit last night
    The snow glistens in the morn light
    I'll have to take care
    and long underwear
    This cold really does have a bite.

    Good ones, Richard!

    Disappointed no snow came my way
    Though I know most prefer that any day
    The sunshine's still quite cold
    Winter still has its hold
    No matter what the early birds say

    (We had some robins arrive, a whole flock of them, about 3 weeks too early - there are no bugs or worms yet, they're having to rely on dry birdseed like the rest!)

    The numbers for the weather do not tally
    For the transplant who did hail from Cali.
    Would it be bold
    To say it's too cold
    And he misses the temps from the Valley?


    I do not say this with sass
    but one thing I cannot let pass
    I own a brass monkey
    Who is feeling funky
    and outdoors he does freeze his (behind)?

    Ice and snow and the sleet
    For the first few hours is quite neat
    After a few days
    Cabin bound and in a daze
    I feel the need for some heat.

    My fingers go cold at thought
    I forgot the gloves that I bought
    They reside on the table
    Because I am not able
    To remember, my mind must be shot......
