St Patricks Day Poems for Kids

“I’m a little leprechaun

Dressed in green,

The tiniest man

That you have ever seen.

If you ever catch me, so it’s told,

I’ll give you my pot of gold”-unknown


“One day out walking,

I happened to see

Five little leprechauns

Coming toward me.


They ran to a house.

They ran through the door.

I managed to catch one.

Then there were four.


Four little leprechauns

Climbed up a tree.

I caught another.

Then there were three.


Three little leprechauns

Hid in a shoe.

I caught another

Then there were two.


Two little leprechauns

Started to run.

I caught another.

Then there was one.


One little leprechaun

Ran to his gold.

He grabbed some coins—

Then stepped out bold.


“Give back my friends,

And I’ll give you this gold.”

So I set them all free.

Now my story is told!” -Jean Warren


“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


“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


“Leprechaun, leprechaun, fly across the sea

And fetch an emerald shamrock for you and me.

Do not bring a nettle or a thistle for a joke,

But bring an Irish shamrock, for we are Irish folk.

And you and I, my leprechaun, will wear the shamrock gay,

And match it with and Irish smile upon St. Patrick’s Day!”- Henry Bennet
