FURTHER UPROOTED VERSE: More Poems About TREES

WORDPLAY post #178

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, May 2019. Most of the verses presented here have  been published (a few are still under review) at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. 

WORDPLAY LINK: An earlier collection of illustrated poems on this theme was published as a wordplay post, "UPROOTED VERSE: LIMERICKS ABOUT TREES" here. These arboreal posts also pick up on themes discussed in the earlier post "Sappy Verse", that has themes related to the Joyce Kilmer poem.

SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post. There is some intriguing connection between some of these verses about trees and the themes of the singable lyrics blogpost "Delights of the Garden".


Verses about Waterfowl (part #2), July '19
Verses about Trees (part #2), Aug '19, as above
AND, further posts for nature-lovers are pending ...
