St. Patrick's Day is on the 17th of March! So, I thought it would be appropriate to make it a theme for my poetry challenge. You can take anything you want out of this occasion to make into a poem. Here's a list of random topics you can put into poetic words:

  • The colour green
  • Leprechauns
  • Parades
  • Irish coffee
  • Clovers
  • St. Patrick's Day cupcakes
  • Candy
  • Guinness
  • Hats
  • The phrase "Kiss Me I'm Irish"
  • Traditional Irish music

I hope I was able to inspire you with my lovely list. XD I'll post up a poem or two of my own if I can get a member or two to join in. I encourage you to make the poem(s) look pretty with bbcodes. If you need some guidance as to what style your poem should be, take a look at Shadow Poetry.

Scifi, Fantasy, Modern, Magical, Horror, Noir, apocalyptic, Grimdark, yaoi, yuri, anything really.
I don't know why I'm so pleased,
to see someone so green,
But seeing you in those four-leaf clovers,
and that silly hat,
Makes me want to beckon you over,
And knock your shyness on its ass,
I know you're trying to wiggle away,
But I just want you to stay,
So be my little leprechaun,
just for one day?

They hide their pots of gold,
and make people feel unlucky,
