When I'm looking for ideas to write about, I sometimes check out the National Day Calendar. I always find something interesting there. Yesterday, I found this:
"Observed annually on May 12th, National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, illustrator, author, and poet Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 – Jan. 29, 1888). Lear is known mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry, prose, and limericks."
Silly limericks can be fun to read, but I had an idea for a topic with a more somber tone.
The first weekend of May was cold, dark, and rainy. It was so gloomy outside, our plans had to be cancelled. That led to this poem.
A big thank you to Rose at Imagine the Possibilities for hosting today's Poetry Friday.
Have a great weekend!
