st. patty's limerick

writing a limerick
so easy and simple
a little irish humor
give both cheeks a dimple
rainbows and leprechans
have come into season
but really St. Patrick
has given us reason
the three leaf clover
so common to us
settled an argument
a great big fuss
Father, Son, Holy Ghost
one from three?
St. Patrick with one clover
named one for each leaf
so easy so simple
as anyone can see
you can have one God
and He His three leaves

    Okay! you got John I did not think I would post a favorite. I will post this one only because I am part Irish. I love the green. I also like the fuss in the middle. The hell with it I liked the whole poem.

    good comparison--explaination of the trinity.

    John iii, I think of the three leaves as the Father, His Only Begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost. Since they have appeared in the scriptures simultaneously, I think of them as three beings, but ONE Godhead. One in purpose...working together as ONE. Great analogy! (And thank you for your most welcomed comments on my blog “Another quick SURVEY- Is Monoku for you?” It was definitely fun to read with the diverse responses. Thanks for participating. BIG SMILES. Love to you. Dane Ann

    I have heard different ways of describing the Trinity but this one is a new one to me, an easy way of putting it to light. Thank you for your comment John it means a lot coming from you. Blessings. Ron
