Limerick Day Fun (Limerick)

On your mark,  get your pens set…   May 12th is Limerick Day, and it not only celebrates the birthday of Writer Edward Lear (1812-1888), who popularized limericks in his Book of Nonsense (1846), it also celebrates limerick poems.  Soooooo, even if you can not go to the city of Limerick, Ireland, there is no rhyme or reason why you can not still celebrate…write (puns intended).
