Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.


Once upon a time, a silver doe

Came out of nowhere into the snow

To the pool it walked

Harry followed, shocked

Limerick ends. Next you’ll never know.

This in response to the the Writing 201 challenge which required us to write a limerick (9-9-5-5-9 syllables, a-a-b-b-a rhyme scheme) on ‘imperfect’ but guess the only thing imperfect is the poem itself, lels. Used enjambment. The theme, in case you can’t recall (or haven’t read), is a chapter from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows where the pretty thing comes to his rescue while at the forest.

  2. Admitted, for long away from blogging did I go
    What was the reason, I still don’t know
    I can say I was busy and didn’t have time
    But that’s an excuse, not worth a dime
    I tried to compose a limerick, how did it go?

  6. Great job! I love this one. The ending was great. I’m not too familiar with Harry Potter but I enjoyed the limerick on its own.
