St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May you live to be a hundred years,
With one extra year to repent.
In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God.
May the strength of God pilot us, may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us, may the word of God direct us. Be always ours this day and for evermore.
When anyone asks me about the Irish character, I say look at the trees. Maimed, stark and misshapen, but ferociously tenacious.
May you live all the days of your life.
Old Celtic Blessing
May the blessing of light be on you--
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.
May St. Patrick guard you wherever you go, and guide you in whatever you do and may his loving protection be a blessing to you always.
Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter.
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after.
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes...
That's the Irish for You!
Chaucey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure 'tis like the morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright and gay
And when Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away.
