Haikus and Limericks

Posted by: Paraskevi Belogia

In January, while the Romanian group was working on their haiku poems, the Greek group was writing their Limericks! Both groups completed their tasks with great success and all the new poems are published in our blog! Well done to all of our students, they did a great job for one more time:)

A few things about Limericks:

Limericks were used in Nursery Rhymes and other poems for children. Limericks have been traced back to the fourteenth century English history. The word Limerick comes from the Irish town of Limerick.  The content of Limericks is often bawdy and humorous.  A Limerick as poetry is simple and short, as Limericks only have five lines.  The theme of our Limericks is “People”.
