Fred the Elf

Fred the Elf

A Poem by Claire in VA
"

This is a limerick for St. Patty's Day!

"

There once was an elf named Fred,

who was so shy he always turned red.

So on March seventeen,

he painted himself green!

Now Fred!  That's using your head!

I entered this in a limerick contest in 6th grade and won. I was over-the-top excited to be the winner!
I love limericks; there are quite a few clever ones out there!

Heh-heh, this is great. Even greater that you wrote it in the sixth grade and was so deservingly rewarded for it. I wrote stuff in the 6th grade, too, but it's long gone.

So cute, Claire! I don't know much about limericks but this one is cool. I think you deserve the award. Is it too late to congratulate you? :)

The river??!! I've never heard of that!! Thanks for reading and commenting!
A cute poem and well constructed, especially knowing you write it when you were in 6th grade. ;) My Irish family would get a kick out of it.
