Lundi limerick #96

Do you fancy a home in Joys Green

it is small and incredibly clean

No school and no shop

no post or bus stop

Not good if your child is a teen


The village, shown above,  still has its own playground and a small football pitch. The Joys Green community centre is also still situated within the old primary school grounds and meetings regarding the local area are often either held there or at the Memorial Hall in the adjoining village of Lydbrook.

  1. It sounds about the same size as our little village, though the surrounding countryside is different. It’s very flat where we live and the countryside looks beautifully rolling around Joys Wood. Your lovely limerick describes the village well.

  2. Sounds like a beautiful place! Your limerick makes it so inviting! 🙂

    But, maybe I’m weird…Having been a school teacher, and being a mom and a grandma…
    I like living in a neighborhood with children. I like hearing them laugh and play…I like when they draw chalk hearts, smiley faces, flowers, etc., on the sidewalk in front of our house…I like giving their families goodies at Christmas…I like supporting their school projects, buying their Scout cookies, etc. 🙂

    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  3. Sounds very quiet!
    I don’t know who wrote the wiki page but I love some of the terminology they used – “which is hopefully going to be re-opened eventually”, “The village shop, when it used to be open”… 🙂

  4. The surroundings are so beautiful. And as you have rightly said I wonder if it would appeal to a teen 🙂 but one never knows. I do not know much about limericks and I am learning about them form your posts :)Thank you,

  5. I live in a village with no school and no shop, though we do have a post office set up for one morning a week in what used to be a farm shop. The bus stop is only in use if someone requests that a bus comes to the village, which means, rarely. We also have no pub. Generally, I love it, but a few amenities would be nice… particularly a pub.
