Here’s a Poem for this… Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.

It’s Saint Patrick’s Day and
Everyone is Irish today
And we’ll have some fun along the way

Green shamrocks and a colourful rainbow
In the clear blue sky
And the shiny pots of gold are in sight
And we’ll sing and dance
All through Saint Patrick’s night

From Montreal
To Quebec and to
Gatineau and on to sunny
Saint Hyacinthe

With classical Irish
Music fills the air
And all the little leprechauns
Are dancing and jumping
Up in the air and the little children
Are having so much fun

And I love Saint Patrick’s Day and
I’m playing the fiddle on
This special Irish day and
The people are matching through the
Streets celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day

And the little children
Are running up and down
And chanting Saint Patrick

And we will sing
And dance
All through the night

So may the love and luck
Of the Irish be
With you all today on this very
special and loving
And peaceful happy Saint Patrick’s Day.

David P Carroll.
