And ofcourse you can send in your own, self-made limerick! Send it to Peppy or Byronbrand.                                 

A number of limericks by Poffo Honeydew on a seperate page.


In the North lives a dog who's called Ruff,

he is bright and can do lots of stuff.

Now this Ruff is so clever,

there's a lad swearing never

to play cards with a dog that can bluff.



There once was a lass from up North,

who the bagpipes strongly abhorred.

When she heard but a peep,

she would cry out and weep,

till peace was once more restored.


Now Hobbits like hearing good stories

Of heroes, and treasures and glory

But I don't have the time

So intead here's a rhyme

About the young lass Miss Amorey!


When she starts to recite we all cheer.

With all lim'ricks she makes in a year

you could fill up a pack.

Daphnea sent a whole stack,

so she gets her own section right here.


Announced is a concert for Buckland.

It will be the first of many in Breeland.

The strollers will play,

but from the Shire away.

 And starting they will play at Golden perch friday'


I once was misled by a fibber

With lies that made me stand and jibber

But much later that day

My bad mood went away

At seeing the dancing Miss Tibba!
