Shamrock Blessings





For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way. Good health, good luck, and happiness for today and every day.


May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks, may your heart be as light as a song, may each day bring you bright, happy hours that stay with you all the year long.


— Irish Blessings

The Shamrock



When spring rains make flowers bloom
And Johnny-jump-ups come to light,
And clouds of color and perfume
Float from the orchards pink and white,
I gather shamrocks in my hand,
An emerald spray with raindrops set,
Like jewels on Spring’s coronet,
So fair, a green hope from the land.



— Adapted from the poem by Maurice Francis Egan

This is so very lovely. I'm a day late, but better late than never!
