How to Write a Limerick

Remember to follow these steps:


  1. Choose the name of a person or place and write the first line.

  2. Look in a rhyming dictionary for words that rhyme with your person or place name.

  3. Write line 2 and 5 to rhyme with the first line.

  4. Now write lines 3 and 4 with a different rhyme.

When you are done writing, read your limerick out loud to see if it has the right rhythm; three “beats” on lines 1, 2, and 5, and two “beats” on lines 3 and 4, as shown above. If not, see if you can rewrite some words to get the rhythm right.
