Happy St Patrick’s Day!

“Be sure to wear green
on March seventeen,
or else Irish leprechauns
pinch your bones clean!”

― Richelle E. Goodrich

Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit!

I’ve got a touch of the Irish,
Just a little, on one side,
But it’s something that I’m proud of,
I wear that mantle with pride

I get it from my Papa
He came from Donegal
I miss his cheery demeanour
We always had a ball

He always looked for sunshine
Even when the sky was grey
He always saw the good things
In every single day

  1. I love everything about this post, KL. The poem is so sweet. I can almost picture your dad with a sunny disposition. I laughed at the lines, “or else Irish leprechauns pinch your bones clean!” Heavy pockets and a light heart to you too, KL. 🙂
