Windy St. Patrick’s Day Limerick

Windy St. Patrick’s Day Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Thinking Jack Frost had split, we high-fived.
But our basking in warmth was short-lived.
Winter managed to con us–
Cold wind is upon us–
A low blow as St. Pat’s Day arrived.

(More wind poetry here.)

    ha. the cool wind blew in here as well today…
    still some warmth….but a chill wind…maybe
    it was pinching all those that did not wear green…

    Those in town at the several Irish pubs are feeling no pain or cold! But the wind is only chill and not freezing as it has been. Happy Day!!!!

  7. How fun and true, Though a chill has taken over here too you have given my face a smile. Cheers!

  8. We have two tenders at the Pub
    dispensing poetics, wine, & grub–
    calling for verses of the Wind,
    gathering embraces before the End;
    as time runs out & doors are locked.

    Dressed all in green she was stylish
    with a one day brogue of the Irish
    but her Guinness induced whine
    didn’t sound quite so fine
    by the end of the day it was tireish.

    Ha! It’s supposed to snow here in NYC on Friday, the first day of spring. That mean ol’ lion is layin’ a whupping on that poor lamb’s tail something fierce this week.
