Happy Saint Patricks Day
I had a strange and wonderful dream,
it was in a land all filled, with emerald green,
A bag-piper appeared, wearing an enormous ring,
he sang to me," I,ll take you to the Leprechaun King",
along a lush green and rainy terrain,
with grass as luscious, as golden grain,
A great green castle did we confront,
guarded by a big eared little runt,
He opened up the pearly gate, and admonished us for being late,
there was a great big hall, entertaining a giant feast,
when all went silent, both man and beast,
a figure appeared, why it was the King!,
and Oh! he was such a little thing,
All bowed as he stood up, and in a loud voice did say,
" The time has come, for all of us to pray."
" With joy to all and to none dismay,
I wish all Earthlings, a Happy St. Patrick's Day! "
