Open Link Monday: a limerick-off limerick

As many of you know, I've been ill. I've also been working on an important project, between sniffles and snuffles and snizzles and all. But I did come up with something for Madeleine Kane's Limerick-Off, and that, in turn, gave me something to post for Open Link Monday at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.
This limerick has a title, and, in addition to being titled, it is all very, very true. Sorry story of my life for the past couple of weeks.
Aurora Deplora

A lady displayed her dismay,
dismayed by a lack of display
by the lights of the north
when they did not come forth,
til she left, and they showed up next day.

Kay, you seem to be saddled with the World's Longest Cold. Are you sure that's all it is? Did you see a doctor? Do I need to head north and fuss atcha?

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I have that kind of luck too! Hee hee.

Ella said...

Oh my... ;D
You are so clever Kay!
Illness never takes your humor away~
Get well soon and no more dismay!

Kay, I'm sorry you're suffering again. No-one would ever know from your blog posts just how many difficulties there are in your life because your posts are all presented so beautifully.

I wish you better health and strength.

We've been listening to Alison Krauss a lot recently - what a talent. Kind of takes you out of yourself.

You are very good at the limerick form. This has the right blend of tragicomedy, to make us laugh but share your disappointment too.

I would be sad to miss those dazzling aurora lights ~ Happy Monday ~

Here's to better health, Kay! I enjoyed your work.

Laurie Kolp said...

Hope you feel better soon... love the limerick, though!

Susan said...

I laughed and then sat here empathizing, feeling sorry for myself too.

Kim Nelson said...

Hope you feel better soon... and your limerick oozes disappointment.

Tammy said...

Those sniffles certainly haven't harmed your cleverness any. Sending warm thoughts and wishes for your good health.

Love the title and the limerick. :) Hope the sniffs and sneezles are on the way out...
