Kennings have their origin in Anglo-Saxon Old English poetry. A
kenning is a literary device in which you use two words or a compound
word in a new way to describe a noun, such as "sword bearer"
You can make puzzle poems by using several kennings to describe
the same thing. Lots of Kids on the Net writers and schools have
Limericks are always fun to read and write. Whether you follow
the strict rule or are a bit creative, the important thing is that
they're absurd or funny.
