In five words, the taste of summer.
Sweat, Fire camps, Wind and Home.
In a line of a limerick, the feel of fall.
“A limerick is a form of poetry, especially one in five-line, predominantly with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA), with humorous intent. The third and fourth lines are usually shorter than the other three.”
Textbook definition of autumn
The textbook definitions of autumn:
Clean brains with lessons forgotten,
Flying kites, windy nights, dirty boots,
New uniforms and schoolbags packed with fruits
On a background of colours as soft as cotton.
I believe “Clean brains with lessons forgotten:” is the line that brings about a feeling of autumn in my heart, since I’ve often been in that position.
Feelings of autumn
September ends with a dancing kite;
October ushers the wind during dark nights
Morose November weeps all day long
The stains of autumn confined in a last birdsong,
Before it journeys to horizons that shine white.
The line that encompasses the feelings of autumn in this limerick is “The stains of fall confined in a last birdsong”
PS: This is the first time I’ve ever written a limerick.. How did I do?
