There was a young lady called Rose,
Who played Chopin etudes with her toes.
When they asked, "why your feet?"
She replied, "you can't beat
Them, when all of your fingers are froze."

Excellent. Nothing like a good limerick.ReplyDelete
And they're short, Kay. So much easier.Delete
Thank you, what did you do with yours?Delete
Nimble and quite skillful...ReplyDelete
Great limerick! Well done!ReplyDelete
You're very kind, Kathe.Delete
Frivolous and fun ..I like it!ReplyDelete
Oh absolutely, and we sure know lots about that these last couple of months!ReplyDelete
Don't we just!Delete
I think my Mum would have told me off if I'd tried that on our piano. But then I never had such pretty feet. And I couldn't play Chopin. But apart from that..... Now you'll tell me off for starting sentences with conjunctions.ReplyDelete
That's the kind of rule you can break once you've learnt it, GB. I do it all the time....Delete
Verrrrrry clever. Thank you!Delete
I suppose it would be better exercise than sitting and playing with her hands.ReplyDelete
Why, Patsy? I'm intrigued.Delete
Awesome limerick! I love to see a little form in my poems! Bravo!ReplyDelete
The grammarian in me had to come up with another offering (but it's too much like yours to submit it at Magpie Tales):ReplyDelete
A pianist, Heidi has chosen
To make music in lederhosen.
When the cold North wind wind blows
She plays Bach with her toes
Because all of her fingers are frozen.
Very good! Why not sumbit it? There are lots of y serious ones. We need to help keep the balance!Delete
Yup! Fingers do have the tendency to stiffen up!ReplyDelete
Like now. It is freeeezing.Delete
Ha! I certainly feel froze these days! But my toes aren't that talented!ReplyDelete
