Yes Ock, half eleven's not late
for Loyal - whose posts don't abate
as the night heads for dawn
For I see them each morn
And I notice how late she's awake.

Dear Jude, I understand now
Why you only did four lines, and how
You left it to us
The last line to 'suss'
It certainly could add some 'wow'!!

with yer own cleverly well thought out rhyme

A rhyme that's unfinished is fine
For others can add the last line
If you leave it undone
We can all have some fun
But I will just add it to mine.
It seems like the icy cold blast
Will be coming again, and real fast
Did you see all that snow
We'd better lie low
And wait till the bad weather's passed...
Oh I feel for those living below
In the South, with the cold and the snow
And there's some without power
Even just for an hour
Would be bad. - I would rather death row.
I remember the snow from years past
White flakes from the sky falling fast
How my fingers and toes
Exposed really froze
And the wind from the south's wintry blast.
It may be on cards very pretty
But it's hard on the folks in the city
That's Christchurch, you know,
Without power in the snow
For them I feel nothing but pity.
I once lived in Christchurch when snow
Fell quite thickly three days in a row
The first day was thrilling
Then next day quite chilling
The third, we just prayed it would go
We got sick of just whiteness for miles
Schools closed was just one of the trials
Not able to drive
We thought, "will we survive?"
But the snowmen we made brought some smiles.

I've been off the air for a while
Catching up's giving me a big smile ...
I have been on a bus
There were 30 of us -
And we trundled around the South Isle.
It was going great guns at the start
That was, till we got to the part
Where we all got snowed-in
Very fixed was our grin -
The impassable passes were ahhht (out) !!!!!!
So we went back to Hoki again
Where we all sat it out in the rain ...
The motels were dry
But I wondered why ...
Rain, snow and wind were a pain !!!
We finally got home today
And the hubby and cats said, "hooray !!"
Though I had a great time
With those good friends of mine
There is no place like home, as they say !!!
I'm enjoying the limericks on here,
Janda, welcome !! It's great that you're near
We don't want to spoil
Glen, Valsi or Loyal,
Kuranui and co - how we toil
To get our rhymes onto this site
We scribble with all of our might
Oi Ocker - don't stop!!!
I might get in a strop
'Cause I like yer strine 'n yer skite !!!
Catsmum, it is such a shame
That the weather there made your trip lame
Although it is sad
That such trouble you had
In the cold home is good just the same.
Crikey The new all Blacks were Stylish
when they put paid to them Irish
but I would Cry
if I didn't have Sky
and have to watch it on Prime wouldn't be my wish
Ocker #7235 I was trying to think of words to rhyme with Irish...
