Esther’s Challenge – Laugh-along-a-Limerick

Happy Monday to you all and welcome, once again, to Esther Chilton’s regular kick-off-the-week challenge.

Today, Esther’s one-word prompt is LARK. So can you write a limerick using the word LARK in it somewhere?

As an Ocado driver last year, my favourite listening on my route was Classic FM. Every year, the listeners vote for their favourite classical piece. In 2021, the number one in the Classic FM Hall of Fame was Ralph Vaughan Williams’s “The Lark Ascending.” Listen to it. It may inspire you to write and amazing LARK limerick.

If you prefer to side-step the weekly prompt, please feel free to ignore it and write a limerick to suit your current mood and feelings. Just let it flow. Delight us all with your creativity.

  1. I’m very rarely up with the lark
    Early attendance I get a black mark
    Just goes to show staying up late
    Does not myself an early bird make
    I get up so late, its already gone dark!

    I took to sea on a lark
    on an ancient sailing bark
    I had some fun
    in the sun
    but got burned real dark
    I heard the meadowlark sing
    a song guaranteed for tears to bring
    quite a treat
    both sad and sweet
    and as fresh as early Spring

  3. Bony Tony was a naughty boy.
    A prank as a lark was his favourite joy.
    Stink bombs he dropped
    Until he was stopped
    By a teacher who Tony annoyed.

    A lark ascending, by and by,
    Was heard to muse, ‘I wonder why
    Vaughan Williams thought it quite normal
    To keep our friendship very formal,
    And never, in public, call me Sky?’

  7. Fashionista, Alexander McQueen,
    Was addicted to cocaine and caffeine,
    Got up with the lark
    Retired when t’was dark –
    And was productive all hours in between!
