Although this lil ditty was written about seven years ago, I somehow had totally forgotten it. Just recently, a loving niece handed me an envelope. Inside were three separate 8.5 X 11's, each with a rough draft, in my own handwriting, with only a few minor subtle differences. Neither of us knew why she had them! Although forgotten, as I said, I was quite pleased with myself! ERGO EGO - see what YOU think!
The Blue Shamrocks
While strolling through the park one day,
I saw a bench and took a seat.
The skies were blue, like a Jay,
when perchance I gazed upon my feet.
There, nestled amongst the stones and grass,
I spied a most curious oddity.
Two little shamrocks of blue mass
were shining like stars of the sea.
As I reached gently down to pluck one,
a voice whispered "no, no, don't do!"
So I left them both there in the sun,
to please another visitor - like you.
