Writing 201, Assignment 2: Limerick – Brooks


Day 1 of writing 201 was the source of intrigue and excitement. Day two is finally here, and it brings with it a very familiar face, the limerick. Today’s assignment suggest a prompt and a device to implement. Based on today’s brief, I have to make use of alliteration, in a limerick to present a journey to you, the reader. Enjoy!

Beneath the brackens bosom, a babbling brook bleeds,

Running free from forests foot, finding flesh in fuller seas.

Fleeting, forgotten moments

Turn trickles to testing torrents,

Beneath bracken the brook begins, in tides of freedom it leads!

  1. Wow! You can’t even tell this is a limerick. There’s not a lick of the typical cheesiness. And impressive use of alliteration. I love that you used freedom. That’s where my mind went with this challenge as well.
