Light Verse

  Light verse poems are whimsical poems similar to limericks. These poems are mainly written for entertainment and/or humor. My example poem contains lots of wordplay, and that is one of the distinguishing features of light verse poetry. These types of poems can also be filled with nonsensical content. I enjoy light verse poetry, and I hope you enjoy my example...

Whether the weather be fine

or whether the weather be not,

Whether the weather be cold

Or whether the weather be hot,

We'll weather the weather

Whatever the weather,

Whether we like it or not.
