Shamrocks – To right and left and everywhere is green, green, green!


St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick’s Day is with us,
The day when all that’s seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!
(If the leprachauns can do then so can you!)

And Irish tunes they whistle
And Irish songs they sing,
To-day 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!

    I used this little poem every year I taught first grade, in inner city schools. I taught them that to be Irish meant to be lucky. I was trying to recall all of it this morning and had some gaps so my daughter said “Google it!” and here you had put it !! My thanks to ye and Irish blessings!
