In honor of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, whose day we celebrate every March 17, here is my shamrock of three poems about Ireland and Saint Patrick written for Saint Patrick’s Day.

Ireland Acrostic – lreland Always Beckoning

I reland always beckoning:
R ainbows and pots of gold;
E merald Isle ever glistening in Celtic tales of old;
L eprechauns, lurking, listening;
A ncient Druids by Saints redeemed.
N omad offspring seek those green shores,
D rawn to Eire like ancient reckoning.

St. Patrick the Shepherd – A Poem for Children for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick as a young man

Was captured and carried away.

He became a slave in Ireland,

Where he’s loved until this day

Patrick tended his sheep flock,

Where he heard the voice of God,

And he became a shepherd,

To those born on Irish sod.

He used the Irish shamrock

To teach the trinity.

He showed the Celtic Church

The path to Eternity.

So wear your green with honor

And remember this great man —

A saint who learned as a captive

To seek God and follow his plan.

St. PatrickAcrostic – Sent to Ireland by God

S ent to Ireland by God,
T aken there by force.

P atrick tended his flock
A nd listened to the Lord.
T ime ended his bondage
R eturning as a free man.
I nspiring with stories and service,
C eltic Christians honored him,
K eeping his memory forever green.
