Talking Limericks

Is there a one-word translation of the word "Limerick"?

Are there any Limericks in spanish that follow the same format?

Lines 1, 2, and 5 have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with one another.
Lines 3 and 4 have five to seven syllables and also rhyme with each other.


Just something I was wondering about on this booooorrrrriiiinnnnggggg day at work!

¿Tienes que trabajar los dominos?

Sólo tengo esta traducción para limerick - quintilla jocosa, pero la verdad no sé si está bien. Además no cabe dentro del criterio que pusiste de que sea una sola palabra.

Esto es del artículo Limericks en Wikipedia en español.
Quote:
Un limerick es un tipo de poema humorístico, con gran afición en lengua inglesa, aunque no es exclusivo a ella.

Requiere una organización estricta de 5 líneas y el esquema normalmente utilizado para las rimas en los limericks es "A-A-B-B-A".

Como dice David, sería una quintilla ó quinteto, según el número de sílabas. Pero yo no conozco ninguna que sea directamente reemplazable por "Limerick".
Lo de "jocosa" es porque los "Limericks" son humorísticos

Acabo de leer lo de los limericks. Escribi uno hace algunos anos--se trata del invierno aqui en minnesota, EEUU. Ver lo sigiuente:

el fin de la tortura espero
todo el mes de enero
son cortos los dias
las noches son frias
luego viene febrero.

Que les parece? En cuanto a los limericks, todo se trata del ritmo. Normalmente tienen doble o triple sentidos y a menudo son , como se dice, verdes?

Spanish Limericks

Elaina:
I have written a limerick in Spanish.

El libro "Cien años de soledad"
Sacó Gabo Márquez de oscuridad.
El tramo tan hondo
Describe Macondo
Y falta, con mucho, la brevedad.

Any contibutions of your own (or others) gratefully received.

Nice. One grammatical thing is that you need an "a" before Gabo Márquez-- Sacó a Gabo Márquez de la oscuridad.

¡Hola, John! Muy bien.
Estoy de acuerdo con Davidísimo... y también sugiero el "la" que pongo en azul.

Me parece muy creativo... una buena contribución.
