Little Leprechaun 
Abab Iambic T
a mischief, laden Irish elf of Irish men quite bold one collects, inspects, golden gifts the bantam weight of gold a legend bold of many told the phantom thrills of chase the race in sight of shining gold is thither yon, the place the thither yon, abasing race for little pot of ore the tricks are slick, amazing pace …… a rich and golden store the little elf, hombre, is spiff a must to tether soul the little bantam weight is swift the little elf is bold the Irish phantom elf of gold a somber bearded man of Ireland legends clearly told a rainbow’s golden plan the Irish rainbow bows to bond as magic thrill unfolds of stories one becomes quite fond “of legends boldly told”

    Ah, 'tis greed of which you write so eloquently, John. Those leprauchans have all sorts of tricks to tempt us and make us believe there is a "pot of gold" to be found. Deb is sure to love this one! Wishing you success, my friend. Love, Carolyn (back home now)
