Hello, Goodbye, It's Limerick Time

Hello Folks,

I'm "In the Mood" once again, for today only. The lovely gals at True Classics, in honor of their blog-anniversary are hosting a limerick contest; and being the competitive, poetry-lover that I am I decided to take a chance and join up. Without any a-do, my entries:


Oh to dance with the skill of dear Mr. Astaire,
Or to do it all backwards like the girl of that pair.
To tap, tap with your feet
As you waltz down the street,
But you can't and it's really not fair. 

(Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers)




Once was a Lady named Eve
With many a trick up her sleeve.
The sucker did fall,
When he heard her sweet call,
And then, of his senses, took leave.

(The Lady Eve, 1941)


When Miss Rita has scenes
On our big silver screens,
The fellas get jealous
Of her partners so zealous,
And the girls wish that they had her genes.

(Rita Hayworth)

So, there we go. Here's hoping something good comes of these attempts. And happy, happy anniversary to True Classics' girls, may your continuing blogging days be filled with brilliance and good times.

Until Later On~
