My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

A Blessing and a Wish for St. Paddy’s Day



May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.



With St. Patrick’s Day coming up tomorrow, I did a browse around the Internet to find this poem/blessing. I always love re-reading these beautiful, heartfelt words. Good thoughts for every day of the year.
I picked the greenest archive photo I could find to go with it. 😉
May the luck of the Irish be with you today and every day! 🙂
