For this week’s #limerick challenge the boys wanted me to write about a whale (they’ve actually been asking me to do this for weeks but we got sidetracked by ostriches and crocodiles etc.) Here’s what I came up with:
There was an unfortunate whale
Who at the idea of swimming would quail
saying: “Even the notion
Of a dip in the ocean
Makes me sick!” so that whale… learned to sail!
As has become the custom, my sons illustrated the limerick with their pictures. My four-year-old drew the anxious whale and my six-year-old the whale in a boat. Hope you like them!
