State of Nevada Limerick

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


State of Nevada Limerick

There is a place where the flower is sage

a place where insect and Quail engage

in the desert they fight

for a chance and the right

to keep living till their old age.

There is a place where the sky remains blue

where the horizon is plain and true

wide open desert land

where birds of prey look grand

memories of wing span where they flew.

There is Red Canyon in Nevada

outside Vegas home to Sinatra

a vast maze of red rock

an incredible walk

similar to canyons in Utah.

We paddle onto clear Lake Tahoe

or the muddy water of Washoe

either way we will dunk

for our summer spelunk

for a swim when the heat gets us low.
