W3 Limerick


Beauty we are often told

Lasts even when you are old

But wrinkles are dreary

Show that you’re too weary

Should never be shown in bold.


(These lines are what I grew up knowing, not the nine syllable form).

  1. I loved reading your blog post! The poem is really creative and thought-provoking. I think society puts too much pressure on physical appearance and it’s refreshing to read something that challenges that notion. Can you share some other poems or authors whose work you find inspiring?
