EXERCISE Poetry Challenge #13 -- Feelin' Green

    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.
     
  2. 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?
     
  3. Leprechauns

    Leprechauns,
    Sneaky tricksters,
    They hide their pots of gold,
    and make people feel unlucky,
    Gremlins.
