Some days she could fill a journal

About Pierre, her heartache infernal

But he was so sorrowful each time he’d stray

And he’d adore her til she said she would stay

Quel dommage!* Β  Hope springs eternal…

*What a shame

(For some reason I felt the need for this to be set in France and use French, which I don’t speak) πŸ™‚ Β C’est la vie…

In response to Mind and Life Matters Limerick Poetry Challenge.

    1. I know, the color and detail drew me in and that’s why I wrote my limerick the way I did. Thanks!

    1. Thank you. You should try the limericks poetry challenge at Mind and Life Matters. The picture is from Pinterest and I didn’t see any info on location. Isn’t it gorgeous?

      1. Me and Poetry? Ahem O_o. It will be more like a Rap Song meets English Essay Writing :\ .
        The photo is absolutely awe-inspiring. I actually google-image searched. And as usual everything which takes my breath away is from Europe including this and can you guess its country ? PARIS indeed !!! That city , I am telling you. When I thought visiting Paris would put an end to my longing for the city, little did I know all it would do is fuel my passion for it ❀

      2. That picture just spoke to me, too! You might surprise yourself with the limericks. I don’t do poetry, mine sounds very juvenile, but I like the structure of the limericks or maybe haiku…

      3. Hmm..Maybe πŸ™‚ Yours sound great. Don worry about that . Juvenile is good πŸ˜€ Better than a serious tone according to me anyways πŸ˜›

      4. Well, I like my limericks, but other poetry I write — not so good! But doing these challenges is forcing me to write more, which is good. Thanks for reading…

  9. Nice rhyming with “infernal”! Pierre sounds like a bit of a wrong ‘un πŸ™‚

  10. Love this. Not sure about “c’est dommage”… “quel dommage!” could work, at a stretch. Bien joue!

    1. Merci, Al. I will change it, from what I read, quel dommage is more emotional?

      1. I’m not sure “c’est dommage” is ever used. Quel dommage is equivalent to “that’s a pity!”… I wouldn’t dwell on it! πŸ™‚

      2. I want to be perfectly right, lol. Which is why I should stick to English. I fell in love with the picture and it begged for French words…

      4. My wife’s fluent – I only know the odd phrase I remember from school. Although we did spend one new year in France with some French friends, meaning I learnt an impressive array of insults, should I ever need them!

      5. Oh, cool, I’m not always even fluent in English, lol. I know who to ask when I need a good insult now!

  11. C’est bien fait. Pas mal du tout, parce que, tout les choses romantique sent mieux en francais. Well done. Not bad at all because all things romantic feel better in French πŸ˜‰
    Fantastic image, interesting and intriguing words. Pierre is a naughty guy πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you, love. I’m intrigued with French lately and I don’t even know why. That picture just spoke to me! Pierre is a sexy, slimy pig in my mind and my heroine is an insecure little girl who needs to grow up! Two sad people who feed off each other…
