St Patrick’s Day Poem
In the name of dear Saint Patrick
This brings a loving prayer
May you forever be within
God’s tender love and care –
May your heart be filled with happiness –
Your home be filled with laughter
And may the Holy Trinity
Bless your life forever after.
The Wearin’ O’ the Green
Today is the day fer the wearin’ o’ the green.
Today is the day when the little people are seen.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, so if ye’r Irish me lad,
Join the celebratin’ fer the grandest time ta’ be had.
Ya’ put yer hand up in the air, the other hand on your hip.
Ya’ tap yer toe, ya’ tap yer heel, ya’ bounce yer knee a wee bit.
Ya’ prance ‘n dance around the room, n’ circle one two three.
The saints be praised, I must admit, ya’ all look Irish ta’ me.
An Irish Wish for St. Patricks Day
Poet: Julie Garwood
May you always have
A sunbeam to warm you,
Good luck to charm you,
And a sheltering angel
So nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
May your joys
Be deep and many,
May your heart
be light and glad,
May you have the best
St. Patrick’s Day
That you have ever had.
I’ll Wear a Shamrock
St. Patricks Day is with us,
The day when all that’s seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!
And Irish tunes they whistle
And Irish songs they sing,
Today each Irish lad walks out
As proud as any king.
I’ll wear a four-leaf shamrock
In my coat, the glad day through,
For my father and mother are Irish
And I am Irish too!
