Pot o' gold

When  I came to the end of the trail
I was stunned to see  a table spread with gold
Which was being weighed on a magic scale
As two leprechauns I did behold

I stood there frozen with surprise
 as they continued  counting  their loot
While  I stood staring at this golden prize
And these two leprechauns  in green suits

Then they put all their gold into a huge  sack
And into the woods they disappeared
I don't  think they were coming back
But I noticed a gold coin lying there

I hurried to pick it up and told
myself that  I'd found my pot of gold

    Nice going, Joseph. Many times just a part of something is as valuable as the whole. What is it worth to see one leprechaun, let alone two.... Jake
