What Larks! #limerick

Lance Greenfield has recently been running Esther Chilton’s weekly Limerick prompt. This week’s prompt is lark, stimulated, so Lance tells us by his love of Vaughan Williams ‘Lark ascending’.

So I ended up with this…

A Lark ascending, by and by,

Was heard to muse, ‘I wonder why

Vaughan Williams thought it quite normal

To keep our friendship very formal

And never, in public, call me Sky.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
