More Limericks of Dogs and Kings

When I wrote my first limerick yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised by all the positive feedback. I even had a couple of people post limericks in response. 

Then later that evening my little dog inspired another limerick; and then just before bed another came to mind. It’s funny (but not surprising) how things like this come to me in threes. So I thought I’d share these two additional limericks today.

Of Dogs

There was a cute dog who played ball
When chasing he’d give it his all
Then back he would trot
To the ball throwing spot
Whether spring, winter, summer, or fall

Of Kings

There once was a king who loved God
And he danced in a linen ephod
Then scoff did his wife
She envied his life
And his joy she forever thought odd

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Oh you are on a roll now, Linda! Loved these! You make it look so easy, but it’s not! God bless you and all that He and you write! love and prayers for a good Sunday!

    • Deb, It seems like the things I think I can’t do (like write a limerick) are the things that God chooses to do through me to show that I can be so much more in Christ! He’s kind of awesome like that. 😉 Peace, Linda

  2. You found a rhyme for “ephod”? Are you kidding me? Ha ha.

    Anything about dogs and ball-throwing touches my heart. These are both terrific!

    • Linda, This comment made me laugh! As long as I’m pronouncing it right, I guess I did find a rhyme for ephod. 😉 The last line was definitely the hardest.

      I know what you mean about dogs and ball throwing. Have you ever read my poem My Little Dog and His Ball? It has made it into my top posts that are listed on the right side of the blog. Peace, Linda

    • Madeleine, Thanks for inviting me to the limerick-off! It was fun. When I wrote my limerick there I didn’t realize you were also a “recovering” lawyer. I had to laugh when I saw that on your bio page because that’s what I call myself, too. Peace, Linda
