A month to remember
Snow on the hills
Still gives us chills
Spring in September we will always remember

A Limerick is a humorous poem wherein the first line sets up the character(s) and setting, so the reader knows right away who/what the story is about.
Only five lines long, limerick poems have an ‘AABBA’ rhyme scheme
