St. Patrick’s Day, 2017

As St. Patty’s Day was yesterday, I’m a bit late with this, but I thought I’d post it anyway. Just a bit of fun.

St. Patrick’s Day, 2017

I look, for a moment,
between the trees
where shadows drape the air

as sorrow chokes a smile,
for a glint, a snap, a splash of light,
an eye that peers

from a fairytale’s page,
an impish sneer,
a coin of gold,

a leprechaun to assure me
that I am still a child.

  1. So is the controversy implied in the poem in the last two lines it would seem or might it be in the opening with a ‘St. Patty’s Day’ intro – I’m sorry I’m failing in my comment attempt and I’m sure it was well-pitched as a fun poem and I’ve not been here for an age but know I love your poems! I like how this one links to the prompt pages. Hope you’re having a safe, well and happy year so far and onward 🙂
