Grandpa’s Tomatoes (Limerick)

by mossgirl19   Jul 14, 2017


There are tomatoes in grandpa’s garden
He guards these red fruits like a jail warden
But one day, he turned his back
The robins came to attack
And all were eaten, all of a sudden.

    I couldn't comment the first time I read this. Just wanted to say I really love this. How you've captured a moment that will last a long time in this little poem. Nostalgic and humorous as well.

      Hello, Sai. It is nostalgic for me too as my inspiration in writing this is my grandpa's garden which he is very protective of. Thank you for this very heart-warming comment. :-)

    Funny stuff, Mel. I was teaching my kids about limericks the other day and getting them to write their own to some highly amusing results!
    All the best as ever,

      Thanks, Ben. I think that limericks are great for kids. It's really fun coz they can exercise their creativity while being trained to abide by the rhyme scheme. And wow, they have a great teacher! ;-)
