As spring shines in, I have been awarded the great honour of Poet Laureate by the Fernie Academy for poetry month. I value this title beyond measure as I recognize that simply by doing what I love, I am accepted, I am recognized, and I am valued by my community.
Hailing from the county of Limerick in Ireland, a limerick is a funny poem with a strong beat. It usually consists of three long lines and two short. All in all, it’s a light-hearted romp through a few silly stories.
