St Patricks Day Poems
St. Patrick’s Day is here, you see.
We’ll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three.
We’ll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.
I’ll sew green buttons on my vest,
Green for St. Patrick is the best.
I’ll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig–at least I’ll try!-Unknown
“St. Patrick’s 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,
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!-Unknown
Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
he came from decent people,
In Dublin town he built a church,
and put upon’t a steeple;
His father was a Callaghan,
his mother was a Brady,
His aunt was an O’Shaughnessy,
and his uncle was a Grady.
Then success to bold St. Patrick’s fist,
he was a saint so clever;
He gave the snakes and toads a twist,
and banished them forever.-“Unknown
“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.”-Unknown
“A country trimmed with green
It has the shamrocks and the pipes
Those leprechauns you’ve seen
Those leprechauns will trip you
You’ll fall flat on your face
They’ll tickle your nose and sour the milk
Then find a hiding place! .”-Unknown
“A leprechaun is small and green
He hides where he cannot be seen.
But if you catch one on this day,
He must give his gold away.” Unknown
Around a willow tree,
Pussy willows waking,
Longing to be free.
Colleens and shamrocks
And castles old and gray,
Put them all together
To make St. Patrick’s Day. “ Unknown
