Try your hand at a limerick this year! It must be based on the Harrow Fair’s theme – Sunflowers and Scarecrows.
The limerick must be five lines; the first two lines have 7 (up to 9) syllables each, the next two have 5 syllables each and rhyme and the last has 7 (up to 9) again and rhymes with lines one and two. It can be very silly!
Here is an example:
While researching my family tree, (9)
I went back to granddad number three. (9)
And what a surprise, (5)
Without any lines, (5)
That old man looked exactly like me. (9)
1. Open to 18 years and older.
