McFilbert J Magoulahey

Updated on February 23, 2019

McFilbert J Magoulahey was a leprechaun you see

He spent his time writing rhymes beneath a knotted tree

On his head he wore a hat, that fit him perfectly

his suit was green as clover leaves and covered chin to knee

T’was his job to guard the gold in the land of Burgenspree

And keep plunderers from finding it; the ones like you and me

Of stature he was small in size inching barely twenty- three

But McFilbert did his very best what ere his job would be

He had a weakness for a hearty drink and loved a mug of ale

And when it came to stories he could spin a splendid tale.

But McFilbert’s heart was smitten by a girl from Innisfree

For he planned to wed her in the spring and live to eternity

The problem with his plan was he forgot to tell the lass

And when she heard about it, she decided she would pass

Though she loved the time spent with him beneath the knotted tree

She knew for humans and a leprechaun, a marriage couldn’t be

So sadly he accepted the refusal that she made

Although the hurt he felt was something he could not abrade

He still continues to protect the Gold of Burgenspree

And recites his poems to the lass beneath the knotted tree©
