A Limeronnet

I smiled when I first hit upon it
This form that is quite like a sonnet
But it has a meter
That’s softer and sweeter
I’ll call it my new Limeronnet

And now for the part that is tricky
The part that I fear will go wrong
The middle may end up quite sticky
Instead of a beat like a song

But now things are back as expected
The limerick style resurrected
The middle’s a change
And sounded quite strange
But soon I will have things perfected

I like being daft
