Leprochaun Limerick

I've always wanted to befriend a leprochaun;
a mystical friend to party with until dawn.
We'd search for rainbows together,
find gold in the rainy weather,
and ensure no four leaf clovers get stepped on.

  5. @Jessica M - Hehe. That is a very fun image as well! :)

    @Doug - Mmmmmm, Lucky Charms. :)

    @Lolamouse - Awwww, thanks! Social work wasn't for me as a lifetime career, but I still try to apply the principles to life. :)

    @Wanda - Awesome! Leprochaun Watch 2011. Perhaps I should issue a press release! :)

  8. My leprochaun says he'll come say hi next time he rides the rainbow and if you're good he'll bring you some Crunchy Nuts !

  9. @Brian - are you sure your HS friend wasn't a leprochaun? LOL. That would be really cool to find four leaf clovers so often. :)

    @Chris - So glad you liked it! I'm celebrating all week to make sure everyone gets in the green mood. I like green and love Ireland. :)

    @SJ - Woooo hooooo!!! A pot of crunchy nuts MUST have similar value to a pot of gold. :) I'll be watching for the leprochaun sliding down the rainbow...

  13. @versebender - Thanks! Yes, I wish more people would write cheery silly poetry. The serious stuff is great, but hard for me to read some days.

    @Shashi - Good to see you as always. I'm glad you enjoyed the rhyme. I will look for you on twitter! I'm not sure if we are already connected or not. :)

    @Kavita - I would LOVE to go on a leprochaun search with you. How soon can you meet up?! Teehehehe. :)

  16. Upsides with Dr.Seuss any day. I do believe he was much more use to children than the acres of crap publlshed in the guise of Educational Theory and Child
    Pyschology, which benefit careerists in those subjects much more then they benefit the kiddywinks.
