A Saturday Limerick

There once was a poet named Will

Who once stumbled on some daffodils,

As he later recalled

With emotion enthralled,

Now his words are worth more than a mil.

Limerick (on St. Patrick's Day)

There once was a poet from Eire

Who wrote phrases like “widening gyre”

Till he got very old

And his verse could unfold

And his heart lying down flew much higher.

My wit is short, ye may wel understonde

There once was a poet named Chaucer

Who would only drink tea from a saucer.

When asked why, he said,

With an accent well-bred,

to a Chaucer, the saucer is law, sir
