I have three sons in their twenties and have been married for 35 years. Life is good. I embrace life's epiphanies as they come to me and pass them along in my writing.

There’s Luck to be Had

St. Patrick’s Day comes once a year,
Yet there’s luck to be had all the year,

Just gather some shamrocks, some pixie dust too,
Then mix in some wishes to make a fine stew,

Now eat a large bowl after saying your prayers,
Please listen and note: don’t skimp on the prayers,

Next, turn in a circle; three times should suffice,
Then think of a foe and say something nice,

The luck that you wished for will soon come your way,
If it doesn’t come soon,

Continue to pray.

I will be doing an Irish/St. Patrick's Day post every day until March 17th!

Charmed by your lucky poetry! (I'll have a bowl of those, too!)
Thank you, Rolling. I appreciate your kind words. Stay tuned!

mhold, there's plenty of the lucky stew to go around. Thanks for your charming comment!
Beautiful piece, and I will keep telling you why I like the Irish. First, George Bernard Shaw is the smartest man I have ever read. R

Thank, Thoth. I look forward to more praise of the Irish.

Much appreciated, hilarad.

Algis, I'm pretty sure there's a bit of Irish in each of us.
