Twas the week before St. Patty's Day - a poem about prepping for our family holiday


Twas the week before St. Patty's Day
And the excitement is a'brewin'
For on the 17th of March,
We know just what we'll be doin'.

We'll be taking an early train,
Down to New York City
Where we'll take in the Parade, 
With bands and dancers oh so pretty.

We'll join family and friends 
As we sing the songs of old
And our Irish Eyes will be smilin' 
Whether the weather's warm or cold.

We'll be wearing our green 
And our Irish sweaters too,
We'll be bravin' the crowds 
With our rather sizable crew.
On the Cathedral steps we will be
As the parade goes marching by
We'll be burstin' with our Irish pride
As the tri-color flag waves in the sky.

We'll be missing our loved ones 
Who won't be there to share the day,
They will be in our hearts 
As to the music we will sway.

We'll be grateful for the family and friends 
With whom we'll celebrate,
We'll be on that train back home again
Before it gets too late.

We'll smile down upon the freckled faces 
That bring us so much joy,
As we thank God that we are Irish
And have one sweet girl and four sweet boys.
