St. Patty's Day

Updated on December 7, 2011

Comment Please!

On St. Patricks Day this year,
I met a little man.
But once he saw me see him,
He turned around and ran
"Wait up!" I said frantically
"I want to know your name!"
but it made no difference.
He kept running just the same.
His pants were olive green,
And his jacket lime with frills
I followed him down valleys
I ran with him up hills
We ran and ran, not pausing
Even once to take a rest
And although he was small,
He sure was fast, that pest
When he finally stopped,
I was amazed at what I saw
A pot of gold at rainbow's end
My eyes grew wide in awe
"Oh rats!" he said, "You've caught me
And won our little race
Take these chocolate coins
As trophy for first place"
"Chocolate?" I asked, befuddled,
"I thought leprechauns carried gold"
"An old wives tale," he told me,
"Don't believe all that you're told."
