A rainy day is good for the garden
It makes way for the plants to be trodden
So just stay inside
Or take a short ride
Until the mud has a chance to harden.

Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
In GOD we trust
"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains " -
Patrick Henry
Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.

There once was a garden full of flowers,
We sat and just gazed at them for hours
We're loving the view
And the fragrance, too
Too bad they give me the scours.

There once was a green frog named Croak,
All of his friends thought him a joke.
He squeaked when he talked,
Like a door not locked.
So they laughed and laughed when he spoke.

These acrylic paints just bedevil me
Each stroke I mess up, as you can see
My coverage is poor
So I dab on some more
Then sit back feeling pleased as can be.

(an acrylics theme because I'm having my first experiences with them now -- did one still life and started a second painting yesterday . I aim to learn to use the medium with some proficiency. Ooh, INACAR, your signature photo? You are an artist?)

AABBA is the difficult rule of play
But it is said where there's a will there's a way
And tougher than rhyme
Is the metrical time
But oh what fun it is to have your say.

I think that rhyming is far easier than meeting the meter standards. There is a prescribed syllable-count range, but It's more about meter (e.g., which syllables are accented) than the number of syllables themselves. Edward Lear's output is a good place to roll it around.

(INACAR, That is very true. I have often missed entering good lines because some one posted one while I was trying to tweak a line to fit the rules. It often helps to use words that have lots of rhyming words for the last word in a line. It is even more difficult to get the correct number of syllables in the lines so the limerick has the correct rhythm and emphasis on the correct syllables. We try hard though don't we!)

There was an old woman who enjoyed Limericks
Though sometimes she didn't make very good picks
She'd skip form and meter
But liked those by Peter
And sometimes she even liked a few of Ricks.
