IRISH LOVE

Rolling down the hills of Ireland entwined and laughing

Landing at the bottom in the sweet green clover

Kicking up my heels dancing a reel all around you

Singing the songs we love over and over and over

 

Irish love…beauty everywhere…Irish love…music fills the air

 

Diving into the cold but lovely Irish Sea

Kissing and splashing in the frothy spray

Sunning ourselves, delighting in a picnic

Sharing secret dreams of the past and today

 

Irish love…tenderness counts…Irish love…fun is paramount

 

Stepping up to the Giant’s Causeway

My most favorite Irish natural wonder

(Besides yourself, of course, my love—

Vibrant, with a sweet strong thunder)

 

Irish love…cheers to your health!  Irish love…more precious than wealth

 

Seeing your handsome face at my door

You’re telling me there’s no time for tea

I’ve an overflowing storehouse of love inside

Your Irish eyes alone hold the magical key

 

Irish love…would never chain…Irish love…only good to gain

 

St. Patrick summed up Irish love poetically:

(Although this is not from a reliable source)

“It’s joyously unrestrained, and creeps up on you—

If it was a snake it would have bit me, of course!”

 

Irish love…Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Irish Love…Luck o’ the Irish – it’s not a cliché
