Lucky

Salford, 17th March 2021

They said a leprechaun was seen

on St.Patrick’s day

He’d crossed the Irish sea by boat

and travelled the East lancashire Way

he spent his gold coins generously

in all the pubs and bars

and took in all the scenic spots

travelling by taxi car

the wide eyed among you

would have smiled as he went down road

as he left a trail of pennies

on his way to his night time abode

Shamrock

Something makes me smile when i see it

hopping out of the ground

and providing a green border for the

many other plants out in the gardens, parks and forests

related to the pea plant – its known for its three leaves

often seen on St patricks day – it’s a proud irish emblem

clover – its cousin looks on in envy – for while they say its lucky picking four leaves, they’ll

keep on wearing the three leaves of the forest.

Waiting for the springtime

17th March 2018

Sat in the toolshed on St Patricks Day

Noting the barometer turned

Over from Frosty to warm

When all of a sudden the mercury goes into

Fast flowing freefall

And white powdery masses

Land like leprechauns

Lightly covering rooftops and cars
