Observed annually on May 12,
National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, illustrator, author and poet
Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 – Jan. 29, 1888).
Lear is known mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry, prose and limericks.
There was a young dragon called Snap
Who hid everything in his lap.
The intent to deceive
Was hard to believe
But honestly, it is a trap.
