Poetical Tuesday

So Stephanie over at Little Stuff of Life convinced me to try writing a limerick. I warned her that I DO NOT write poetry. After talking about it, she made the wonderful suggestion that I involve Xander and let him write my limerick for me.

I took the bait.

I should have known that Xander would not make this easy... He was insistent that the limerick should use his name and somehow be about football. Finding words and context that rhymes with Xander is not easy, but here is our attempt.

There once was a boy named Xander
Who loved to roam and meander
He played football and such
Although never too much
For he still had to gather some coriander.

Don't try to find any deeper meaning in all of this. Just appreciate that it is about Xander and football.


ok, If we can do this, anybody can. Branch out and explore a new side of yourself. Next week is a Dr. Seuss theme.


  1. Was never my strong suit in school -- really hated it. BUT you did a great job.

  2. Wow! Excellent work, you two! :) I can't believe you found two things that rhymed with Xander...and fit with the poem! Thanks for playing along! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with for Dr. Seuss!

  3. Seriously, sometimes I just need a deadline and someone to convince me to do it. Really, it wasn't as horribly hard as I thought it would be.

    Thanks Steph for the nudge! :)

  4. Good job! Whew... the limerick is the hardest kind of poem to write. Here's to hoping that the Seuss style is much easier on the brain. Smiles, Jenna
