St. Patrick’s Day alliteration poem…Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all you lads and lassies…and little leprechauns, too! As sure as there are leprechauns to make a wish come true, tis nothing but the happiest of days I’m wishing you.


Do you know why we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? It is to keep the little leprechauns from pinching us! Since they are tiny folk, they can hide anywhere and everywhere which makes it very easy to reach out and give a little pinch without us knowing.

Have you ever felt a little something on your skin for no reason that may have felt like a little pinch, a tickle, or an itch? If you weren’t wearing green, it may have been a little leprechaun giving you a leprechaun’s pinch!

So…be sure to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day alliteration poem for your pleasure…

Little Leprechauns

Little leprechauns laughed lightly
as shimmering shamrocks
opened opulently under
the sun’s shining silhouette
on St. Patrick’s spectacular day!

Little leprechauns laughed lightly
as they placed pots of glorious gold
sitting silently under raining rainbows
resonating high above the Irish hills.

Little leprechauns laughed lightly
while waiting for green garmented
lads and lassies to join in a jiggity jig,
sing songs, and share bits of blarney.

Little leprechauns laughed lightly
as the chatty children’s proud parents
whispered words of wisdom countless times
as corned beef, cabbage, and Irish stew
simmered on the stove to be shared by all
as the sun set on St. Patrick’s celebration.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and don’t let the blarney of the leprechauns influence your celebration. On St. Patrick’s Day everyone wants to be Irish because it’s a fun holiday. But did you know that in Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday without all the partying that we Irish Americans enjoy.
