Poem Saint Patrick’s Day

English version:

Saint Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is here, you see.
We’ll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three.

We’ll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.

I’ll sew green buttons on my vest,
Green for Saint Patrick is the best.

I’ll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig – at least I’ll try !

French Translation:

Le jour de la Saint-Patrick

La Saint Patrick est là, tu vois.
Nous choisirons des trèfles, un, deux, trois.

Nous compterons les feuilles et les examinerons,
Et peut-être trouverons un trèfle à quatre feuilles.

Je vais coudre des boutons verts sur mon gilet,
Le vert est la meilleure couleur pour la Saint Patrick.

Je porterai un chapeau vert, très haut,
Et danserai une gigue – au moins j’essaierai !

  1. Hi, I would like my child to recite the St. Patrick’s Day poem for her festival. Can I have permission to do so?
