Dear kids, St. Patrick`s day is just around the corner — on March 17. It`s celebrated in honour of Saint Patrick, the patron of Ireland and a saint who brought Christianity to the nation. Saint Patrick is also known for driving the snakes from Ireland. Green is the official colour of the Irish; that`s why people wear something green on this day. They enjoy themselves holding parades, going to the pubs and organizing fairs and festivals. Another symbol of the holiday is Leprechauns — they are little people who wear green clothes and carry the pot of gold. A number of poems and verses are devoted to the holiday and we want you to learn some of them and celebrate St. Patrick`s Day with good poetry.

I'll Wear a Shamrock

Mary Carolyn Davies

St. Patrick's Day is with us,
The day when all that's seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!

And Irish tunes they whistle,
And Irish songs they sing,
To-day each Irish lad walks out
As proud as any king.

I'll wear a four-leaf shamrock
In my coat, the glad day through,
For my father and mother are Irish
And I am Irish too!

*** *** ***

Oh, the music in the air!
An' the joy that's ivrywhere — Shure, the whole blue vault of heaven is wan grand triumphal arch,
An' the earth below is gay
Wid its tender green th'-day,
Fur the whole world is Irish on the Seventeenth o' March!
~Thomas Augustin Daly

So, success attend St. Patrick's fist,
For he's a saint so clever;
Oh! he gave the snakes and toads a twist,
And bothered them forever!
~Henry Bennett

The Dear Little Shamrock

by Andrew Cherry

There's a dear little plant that grows in Ireland.
'Twas Saint Patrick himself sure that set it.
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile.
And a tear from his eyes oft-times wet it.
It grows thro' the bog, thro' the brake, and the mireland,
And it's called the dear little Shamrock of Ireland.
That dear little plant still grows in our land,
Fresh and fair as the daughters of Erin,
Whose smiles can bewitch, and whose eyes can command,
In each climate they ever appear in:
For they shine thro' the bog, thro' the brake, and the mireland,
Just like their own dear little Shamrock of Ireland.

That dear little plant that springs from our soil,
When its three little leaves are extended,
Denotes from the stalk we together should toil,
And ourselves by ourselves be befriended.
And still thro' the bog, thro' the brake, and the mireland,
From one root should branch, like the Shamrock of Ireland.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
The fortune of the Irish will be with you.
One green shamrock is but few,
But very soon it will be joined by some others too.
Emerald green shines through,
Just as much as your luck grew.

Today is the day fer the wearin' o' the green.
Today is the day when the little people are seen.
Today is St. Patrick's Day, so if ye'r Irish me lad,
Join the celebratin' fer the grandest time ta' be had.

Ya'put yer hand up in the air, the other hand on your hip.
Ya'tap yer toe, ya'tap yer heel, ya'bounce yer knee a wee bit
Ya'prance 'n dance around the room,n' circle one two three.
The saints be praised,I must admit, ya' all look Irish ta'me.

*** *** ***

Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after.
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes.
