I wrote these for the Omnificent English Dictionary in English Form, a magnificent, ambitious, and slightly insane attempt to write a limerick for every word in the English language, one letter group at a time. You can see my additions and revisions there, but I like to keep them here as well; the menu below leads to permanent pages for each letter group. You can also see some co-written pieces, an area especially aimed at OEDILFers, and a page of limerick biographies of famous artists.
Other commitments have meant taking a break from writing new ones for a while, but there will be more sooner or later; in the meantime, I hope you enjoy what’s here.
The author of these, speedysnail,
Is resting for now, turning tail
From anapest shores
To do prosier chores,
But will one day return without fail.
