limerick challenge #4

limerick challenge #4

For this week’s #limerick challenge the boys wanted me to write about a whale (they’ve actually been asking me to do this for weeks but we got sidetracked by ostriches and crocodiles etc.) Here’s what I came up with:

There was an unfortunate whale

Who at the idea of swimming would quail

saying: “Even the notion

Of a dip in the ocean

Makes me sick!” So that whale… learned to sail!

As has become the custom, my sons illustrated the limerick with their pictures. My four-year-old drew the anxious whale and my six-year-old the whale in a boat. Hope you like them!

More silly limericks next Monday!
