A couple weeks ago, our family went camping in New Hampshire. On the way back, I read some funny limericks out loud. Dad said we should write our own limericks about camping; we all set to work. That’s the way we are, we do silly or sometimes even tricky things for fun. I decided to write a limerick about each person, except me, in the family. I also wrote a family limerick. Micah wrote a limerick about a boy at camp and Anna wrote a poem (she doesn’t know how to write limericks.) Mom and Dad wrote limericks about our camping trip. We had a fun time helping each other with words and phrases. Here are the limericks we wrote:
Dad’s Limerick About Camping
A family vacation up north
They hiked and they drove back and forth
And checking out spaces
So next time they’d have no remorse.
Mom’s Limerick About Camping
“A camping we go” was the cry
That was uttered without trace of a sigh.
We packed up our gear
The van dad did steer
To our spot in the mountains so high.
Ellie’s Family Limerick
There once was a family of five
Who tried through their lifetime to strive
To be kind and nice
And give good advice
And help other people to thrive.
Ellie’s Limerick About Anna
There once was a sweet girl named Anna
Who did not care much for banana.
So though her name rhymed
And was cute every time
We ended her name with Nana.
Ellie’s Limerick About Micah
My brother named Micah is loud
So he always stands out in a crowd.
Though he has a big voice
He is always my choice
And he makes me exceedingly proud.
Ellie’s Limerick About Mom
I know a patient person named Mom.
She’s caring and kind and the bomb*
She does laundry and cooks
Cleans crannies and nooks
She’s pretty and loving and calm.
Ellie’s Limerick About Dad
The best guy in the world is my dad.
He’s hardworking and fun and I’m glad.
He’s funny and nice
And gives good advice.
With Daddy there’s fun to be had.
Micah’s Limerick About A Boy At Camp
There once was a boy at a camp.
Through the woods he often would tramp.
There was a big crowd,
It was awfully loud
And his clothes and his tent got all damp.
Anna’s Free Verse Poem
The trees are shining bright.
Blue sky is shining.
The people crowded around the trees.
So there are the limericks (and poem) we wrote. I hope you enjoyed them!
