Limerick: Once Upon a Journey

Limerick: Once Upon a Journey


I journeyed towards the top of a hill,
And met a Man tilted at its brink;
He looked distraught,
He stood, head first-
I stumbled upon a man looking for peace.

I once journeyed towards a man in need-
Of a wanderer to talk to, a soul to speak;
Till the sun arose,
We exchanged tales of old;
A wanderer and stranger once met at a hill.

  1. I am intrigued… I like how you kept with the format, but skipped the rhyme. I’ve read it a few times now and I’m wondering – is the first stanza from one man’s perspective and the other from the other’s? Please forgive me if the answer should be obvious. I’m definitely not the best interpreter of poetry.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read it over and over πŸ˜‰ its alright, we are all learning here. About the poem, the two verses are from one man’s perspective, the man who journeyed.
