St. Pat's and That's Thats

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Limericks are the order of the day on this celebration of the Irish patron saint. Here are a few limericks and poems that particularly pertain to this occasion.

Have you ever tried your own hand at writing limericks? Nickers and Ink has many limericks. These five-lined, tightly metered rhymes are fun to create. Limericks need not be risqué, although many tend to be. But they can also be simply playful.

Limerick is also one of the largest cities in all of Ireland. So why not come up with a limerick or two to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Do you know what’s wrong with this picture?

The horseshoe and four-leaf clovers are traditional symbols of luck. (OK, these two have three, as my friend Mike fittingly and comically points out in his comment. See below.) However, according to lore, a horseshoe should never be tacked up upside-down. Apparently, the luck will fall out. Instead, the horseshoe should be placed as a “U,” so it will catch any good fortune that happens to come along.

  1. With your riddle, I have me a beef.
    (I know; It's beyond my belief!)
    Yes the horseshoe should turn,
    But there's more that I spurn;
    Your clovers are only three leaf!

  2. I'm always up for some limerick fun. :)
