Shamrocks and shillelaghs,
leprechauns and gold,
corned beef and some blarney,
can’t belay the sadness
or take away the fear,
but can soften “social distance,”
letting words bring us more near.
Wishing us all better times on this St. Paddy’s Day, dear reader.
With many thanks to Susan Rushton
for helping me get photos back in my posts!
