Hardly Spring Straight to Summer
A Collection of Seasonal Limericks
Here’s some limerick to celebrate
that this season is all up to fate
there’s fun in mystery
change what’s customary
either way there’ll be food on our plate.
There is an old man in the Summer
whose white legs were Summer newcomer
his first day in his shorts
with black socks out of sorts
low waistline similar to plumber.
There is an old man whose named Smitty
who loved long walks around his city
though he walks with walker
he will meet each talker
he hears gossip and all the gritty.
There is an old lady named Rosie
every Sunday she’d wear a Posie
in her hair with her dress
where at church they would bless
then gather around her tea cozy.
In contrast there is a young lady
who wears summer clothes on the daily
with hope there will be heat
when Spring and Summer meet
to wear flowers and show off daisy.
There is a young brother and sister
who thought summer sun a tongue twister
start running through sprinklers
start hot evening twinklers
or hover in their neighbors mister.
They say never bring out Tomato
until snow melts off Peavine and flow
every year I am bold
never do what I’m told
my Tomatoes have no chance to grow.
If the heat wilts the Blueberry bush
when the sun seems to want to ambush
all my Spring gardens plans
as we hide behind fans
when Summer relieves Spring with a push.
There is hope that this Summer will bring
many Vegetables planted in Spring
but this Spring passed quickly
a chorus of Dixie
and the season is lost as we sing.
Was there even a Springtime this year?
Immediately in Summer gear
start thinking about beach
the closest one to reach
to jump into water without fear.
