My 1st Limerick

By Valerie J Laidlaw

Years ago, the Fargo Forum had a Limerick contest for St. Patrick’s Day

I don’t win, but my Limerick was in the newspaper with some of the other entries.

From there, I noticed there was a Limerick page on a Website in Norway. I sent a few there which were posted. That evolved into a page devoted to my Limericks, plus, other poems I have written over the next several years.

The First Limerick

“There once lived in Fargo a Laddy,
Whose birthday was Isle of Eire’s St. Patty.
Although Norski by trait –
Irish cakes were his fate –
Labeled ‘Artie O’Kolle’; my Daddy”

A cake I order today to be delivered for a birthday tomorrow.
