B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – Shadorma and Limerick – June 11th, 2016


Yves here subbing for Jen!

First lets begin with the Shadorma which is your go to form. A Shadorma is a non-rhyming 6-line poem in 3/5/3/7/7/5. I am sure you are pretty familiar with the Shadorma by now!

Taken from Wikipedia
A limerick is a form of poetry, especially one in five-line, predominantly anapestic meter with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA), which is sometimes obscene with humorous intent. The third and fourth lines are usually shorter than the other three.

The following example is a limerick of unknown origin:
The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical.
But the good ones I’ve seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

So that’s it the theme is completely up to you!

On another note we at MLMM could use a little help over the summer so if you are interested please drop us a line in the comments below!
