The assignment:

Please write 3 haikus about any subject.

Please write 1 limerick … you can be as bawdy as you’d like!

(I just want them simple poems, with simple vocabulary.)

Definitions from the professor:


A limerick is a humorous, frequently bawdy, verse of three long and two short lines rhyming aabba, and popularized by Edward Lear in the 19th century. Here is an example (from Wiki):

The limerick packs laughs anatomical (A)

Into space that is quite economical. (A)

But the good ones I’ve seen (B)

So seldom are clean (B)

And the clean ones so seldom are comical. (A)


You’ve probably heard of haiku. Heck, you’ve probably written a haiku or two in grade school or high school. According to Wikipedia, haiku “is a very short Japanese poem with seventeen syllables and three verses. It is typically characterized by three qualities:

  1. The essence of haiku is “cutting” (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji (“cutting word”) between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
  2. Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae though often loosely translated as “syllables”), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 on, respectively. (An alternative form of haiku consists of 11 on in three phrases of 3, 5, and 3 on, respectively.)
  3. A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such terms.”
