This Ditty--By Andrea Dietrich--United States

This Ditty

In limerick form is this ditty,
A rhyme not sublime, but it’s witty.
I’m a Word Warrior who
Kicks a rhyme like Kung-fu.
Don’t haiku me. It won’t be pretty!

Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and six grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent nearly a decade now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines and for the website Shadow Poetry.


  1. Well-written, artistic, funny, witty and just an overall nice poem, Andrea. This is one of those feel-good, wrap-your-arms around poems that you enjoy over and over. Thanks for sharing. Continued blessings!

    1. Thank you, Andrea Dietrich, for the following--

      Thanks so much for your words!

  2. Ha, ha! Love a good Limerick! I love writing them myself and perhaps if I forward one I find very poignant ( that is what a good limerick is supposed to be) perhaps Karen will post it........ but yours is very fun to read is all grammatically correct, according to Hoyle and its count and the ending line gives the end-result a good smack! Super fun! Sheri / www.poetryandbeyond.net

  3. Hi Andrea:
    You do well with any form and this is no exception.

    It is on my to-do list though.
