Lear-ing at the Moon


Have you met my best muse, the moon?
Some mornings, she leaves way too soon.
So I woo her with phrases
and sometimes she raises
my spirits to joy, from jejune.


Frank has us pondering Limericks today over at dVerse,
a form popularized by Edward Lear. Come play!

    I HAVE met your muse. She’s my muse too! Love what you’ve done here.

    Nice wooing of the moon with phrases. The limerick sound is perfect as I read it. I had to look up the word “jejune”, but now that I know what it means, it fits right in.

  3. Yep, she’s two-timing us. Love the word jejune.

  4. Aha, a new word to add to my vocabulary. Jejune sent me to the dictionary too! Love your limericks!

    Wish I could see more of her, even if my desire was jejune, (had to google it). Great limerick

    The moon is a wonderful muse. Jejune, a new word for me, too. Love your limerick.

    Thank you for the tip ‘o the hat to my dearest of childhood friends in your title! Was just outside gazing at that sliver tonight – she’s beautiful, like your li’l limmerick!

    I do find it interesting how muses leave us — and I had to look up jejune. Loved the moon as your inspiring muse — especially the morning setting moon. Nice

    So many hearts for putting “jejune” in a poem. 🙂

    This is excellent, Love.

    Oh that moon! Great Limerick De.

    Brilliant, De!
    I once write a poem called Jejune
    but it didn’t include the moon.
    I wanted to post it
    but found out I’d lost it
    and now I need to find a word that rhymes…

  12. Yes the moon can be so inspiring, especially when she play’s peek-a-boo

    Perfect limerick, and I even learned a new weird in the deal!

  14. Slow to comment this week…suddenly life has decided to get in the way of writing…cheek of it 😉 This is a de-limerick…so YOU.

    You puled it off with one try–man, I wrote a half dozen–and did not rise to your expert level. Oh well, that’s why we hang out together at the Pub, sharing our talents.

Use your words.
