Saint Patrick

Happy St Patrick’s Day Shamrock

St. Patrick wore green

But in him no Irish was seen

Capture at sixteen

By Irish pirates would mean

Of sin Ireland he’d clean


Read this article stating the “Truth of who St. Patrick really was”

Veronica Speedwell!
I am so pleased to meet you today,
As you bask in the sun along the roadway.
Your purple spikes reach toward the sky,
Attracting bird and butterfly.
You’re such a carefree perennial,
As you bid travelers “speed you well”.
I think in my garden you should dwell,
Miss Veronica Speedwell .
