An Irish Blessing

May you feel sweet Irish Breezes

blowing fresh across your face-

May Irish Music now be heard

lilting through your place-

May all your days be filled up to the brim

with Irish Cheer-

And may the good Lord Bless You

and hold You ever Near!

Spring Flowers


"Sitting quietly, doing nothing,

Spring comes,

and the grass grows, by itself."

— Basho Matsuo
