In a fright from the brink like a fool.

Who Is Your Favorite President? A President's Day Limerick Poem.

presidents day limerick poem for kids

Now President's Day is nigh
So who is your favorite guy?
A William or John,
Or maybe a Ron,
Or the one who could not tell a lie?

I've studied the 43 men*
And made up my mind only when
After much thinkin'
Decided that Lincoln
Was clearly the best that has been.

*Obama is the 44th President, but Grover Cleveland was president for two nonconsective terms, so only 43 different men have been President

We Three Kings - Christmas Hymn - Limerick Style

Three kings of Orient are
With gifts we travel afar
Field and fountain
Moor and mountain
Following yonder star

Born on Bethlehem's plain
I've gold to crown him again
King forever
Ceasing never
Over us all to reign

Incense to offer have I
To honor a deity nigh
Prayer and praising
All men raising
Worship him God most high

Myrrh is bitter perfume
It breathes of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing
Bleeding, dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb

So glorious behold him rise
King, and God, and Sacrifice
Earth to heaven replies

O wondrous star of night
With royal beauty bright
Westward leading
Still proceeding
Show us the Perfect Light
