Heart of America limerick contest results

By Staff | Apr 6, 2012

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day was evident by the 75 entries in the limerick contest at the Heart of America Library.

Adult division DeeDee Bischoff

I’ve been to Ireland a lot,

But only through books that I’ve got

From my fav’rite librarians

(Who aren’t County Clare-ians,

But does that matter? Or not?

So I can say I’ve been there,

To County Mayo or Clare,

With the help of those pages

And scholarly sages,

And I’ve never left my chair!

Youth grade 5-12 division

Nathaniel Haman

Leprechaun mcNate

There once was a leprechaun mcNate

Who wanted to go on a date

Kate was his choice

But she had no voice

And that was the end of mcNate.

K-4 division

Cole Vietz-Reile

I once knew a man named Sue

He got run over by a tutu.

The tutu was red

It got stuck on his head.

And that was the end of Sue.
