Limerick Starting words…

Limericks often begin with the words:

There once was. . . or There was a. . .

There once was

a gray schnauzer named Spark

Quite talkative, he so liked to bark.

Sometimes running he found

His feet all off the ground

Especially on larks in the park.


Limerick  syllables matter

There once was a girl who loved rhyme;She felt her writing was sublime.Indeed quite a poet,Though some didn't know it,She'd be rich if each paid a dime.
