Motueka Library: Word Feast – Limerick Competition

Tuesday 1st-Thursday 31st October 2019

There Was An Old Man With a Beard by Edward Lear:

“There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, ‘It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!”

Follow Edward Lear’s example and write a limerick, then enter it in to our first ever Limerick Competition, and go in the draw to win a prize!

Don’t know how to write a limerick? Pick up a Limerick Competition entry form at your library during October and find a handy guide on the back.
