Paddy's Day Poems and Poetries

St. Patrick's Day

A day to wear green,
And celebrate with cheer.
A day for Irish pride,
And a pint of beer.
With clovers and leprechauns,
And tales of old,
We honor St. Patrick,
And his story told.

So raise a glass and cheers,
To this festive day.
May the luck of the Irish,
Be with you all the way.

The Emerald Isle

Green hills and rolling landscapes,
A land of ancient charm.
Where music fills the air,
And the spirit is warm.
On St. Patrick's Day,
We celebrate this isle.
With dancing, laughter, and joy,
And a happy Irish smile.

From Dublin to Galway,
And every village in between,
We honor our heritage,
And the love that we've seen.

So let us raise a toast,
To the Emerald Isle so grand.
May the luck of the Irish,
Forever be at hand.

Luck of the Irish

On St. Patrick's Day,
We celebrate with pride.
The luck of the Irish,
And the joy that we provide.
With shamrocks and rainbows,
And pots of gold in sight,
We dance and sing and laugh,
All through the night.

From New York to Dublin,
And every town we know,
We honor our Irish roots,
And let our spirits glow.

So let us raise a glass,
To the luck that we embrace.
May the blessings of St. Patrick,
Shine upon our face.

The Leprechauns are Marching

The Leprechauns are marching,
They're marching down the hall,
They're marching on the ceiling,
They're marching on the wall.
They're marching two by two,
And now it's four by four,
You say you still can't see them?
Move back! Here come some more!
The leprechauns are marching,
I think it's three by three.
Just close your eyes and try now
To visualize with me.
Their merry little feet
Will never miss a beat.
They're very tricky fellows.
Look out! They're under the sheet!

Poem - Enjoying St. Patrick's Day Spirit

Don't Pinch

When I got on the school bus,
I was in for a surprise.
My friends all stared and pointed.
There was mischief in their eyes.
A kid who sat in front of me
reached out and pinched my knee.
My friends all started laughing,
but the joke was lost on me.
And then I got my second pinch.
I felt it on my ear.
And then I felt a third and fourth.
You guessed it--on my rear.
I asked, "Why are you pinching me?
I think it's very mean!"
They said, "Today's St. Patrick's Day
and you're not wearing green."

To Be A Real Leprechaun

To be a real leprechaun,
and have a pot of gold.
To be able to enjoy the music,
and not be left out in the cold.
Their life of enjoyment,
can be seen in their face.
To be a living leprechaun,
is something I can embrace.
Their little deeds of mischief,
and the matching of their wit.
And a toast of Irish whiskey,
to make this seem legit.
I'd love to be a leprechaun,
So life can be a treasure.
I know that I would love this,
beyond any kind of measure.
Dancing in the moonlight,
and hiding in the flowers.
The weeks are so carefree,
that days seem like hours.
From a thousand shades of green,
that's called the emerald isle.
I know the life of merryment,
is really quite worthwhile.
To be a living leprechaun,
is something of what I dream.
For if I really was one,
I would be held in high esteem.

By : Bernard J. Howe

Poem - Green is the color

Treasure Hunt

St. Patrick's Day is coming
And you might think it's a joke.
But I'd like to get my hands on
One of the little folk.
For they say in good old Ireland
If a Leprechaun you hold.
You'll go to the end of the rainbow
To his treasure pot of gold.
It may be a lot of blarney
For tis written in Irish folklore.
The Isle is home to the fairies
To be sure, to be sure, to be sure.

By : Nancy Russell

Ireland and her people

Land of pristine lakes, Verdant valleys and pastoral country side.
Sea swept coastlines, cliffs that climb up and skyward from the ocean waves.
Sun that warms both heart and summer air, casting long
Shadows upon the mist that lingers in the sweet meadow.
Music that delights the ear, while settings one’s heart a-flutter.

“Danny Boy” not just a song, but a nations "anthem"
Brilliant minds, scholars, poets, playwright, authors and men
of letters. Great universities and halls of higher learning.

Great statesman and parliamentarians.
St. Patrick her holy patron.
The harsh famines that gave way to the tidal wave of immigration that
never diminished the Irish spirit and gift of laughter of her great

People who contributed resource and talent to their newly adopted home-lands.

St. Patrick's Day Poem - I'll Wear a Shamrock

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is here, you see.
We'll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three.
We'll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.
I'll sew green buttons on my vest,
Green for St. Patrick is the best.
I'll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig--at least I'll try!

The Wearin' O' the Green

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.

I'll Wear a Shamrock

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 Danny boy, the pipes the pipes are calling, 
From glen to glen and on the mountainside. 
The summer's gone and all the leaves are falling, 
'Tis you must go, 'tis you must go and I must bide !

But come you back, when summer's in the meadow, 
Or when the valley's hush and white with snow ! 
Then I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow, 
Oh Danny Boy, Oh Danny Boy, I love you so !

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying 
And I am dead, as dead I well may be 
You'll come and find the place where I am lying 
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me 
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be 
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me 
I simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

Oh Danny Boy, Oh Danny Boy, I love you so!

Poem - On St. Patrick's Day


A long time ago when the Earth was green, 
There was more kinds of animals then you've ever seen. 
And they'd run around free while the world was being born. 
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn! 

There was green alligators and long necked geese, 
Hump back camels and chimpanzees. 
Cats and rats and elephants but sure a you're born, 
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn! 

But the Lord seen some sinnin' and it caused him pain. 
He says, "Stand back, I'm gonna make it rain. 
So hey, Brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do. 
Go and build me a floating zoo." 

"You'll take two alligators and a couple of geese, 
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees. 
Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born, 
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns!" 

Well, Noah looked out through the drivin' rain, 
But the unicorns was hidin'-playin' silly games. 
They were kickin' and a-splashin' while the rain was pourin', 
Oh them foolish unicorns. 

"So you take two alligators and a couple of geese, 
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees. 
Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born, 
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns." 

And the the ark started movin' and it drifted with the tide, 
And the unicorns looked up from the rock and cried. 
And the water came up and sort of floated them away, 
That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this day. 

You'll see a lot of alligators and a whole mess of geese, 
You'll see hump back camels and chimpanzees. 
You'll see cats and rats and elephants but as sure as you're born, 
You're never gonna see no unicorn.
