Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A St. Patrick’s Day poem to enjoy!

Wearing of the Green

It ought to come in April,
or, better yet, in May
when everything is green as green-
I mean St. Patrick’s Day.
With still a week of winter
this wearing of the green
seems rather out of season –
it’s rushing things, I mean.
But maybe March is better
when all is done and said:
St. Patrick brings a promise,
a four-leaf-clover promise,
a green-all-over promise
of springtime just ahead!

~Aileen Fisher

Fun facts about Saint Patrick & the Emerald Isle:

An Irish Blessing for you…

“May flowers line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart every day your whole life through.”
