Rayna was obsessed with the colour Red
Tristan badly wanted to lock her in wed
He took a knife to his heart
She stopped to admire the art
He asked "Would you love me if I was dead?"

A limerick is a humorous five-line poem with just one stanza. Limericks have an AABBA rhyme scheme and a bouncy rhythm. The subject matter of a limerick is often whimsical and funny.
Limericks all follow the same structure and pattern which sets them apart from other poetic forms and makes them easily identifiable.
- A limerick consists of five lines arranged in one stanza.
- The first, second and fifth lines must rhyme and have 7 to 10 syllables.
- The third and fourth lines must rhyme and only have 5 to 7 syllables.
- The rhythm of a limerick is anapestic, which means two unstressed syllables are followed by a third stressed syllable.
- The first, second, and final line each have three anapests—da dum da da dum da da dum.
- The third and fourth lines have two anapests-—da dum da da dum.
