The radish (a limerick)

April 26, 2011 · 6 comments

I was told that the red I should see
From the gardener — who is he, and not me.
   The color flashed bright
   I pulled with my might
A premie orb overshadowed my glee.

I guess you only do it once, right?

Not a fan of the radish…however, way to go Tim.

love the limerick! did you find yourself thinking in limerick after you wrote this? curious if you’ve had watermelon radishes? just tried them–so pretty!

thanks! I usually resort to low-brow poetry when I otherwise have writer’s block ; )

watermelon radishes are beautiful — had them in Georgia, but not yet here (why didn’t we grow them??). posted about them once.
