In honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, we have a divinely delightful poem for you to hopefully get you in the spirit of the day! There may even be some history in there you didn't know.
An Irish Angel Poem
by Evangeline B. White
Feeling green on this Irish Saint's day,
An angel came down from heaven to say,
"It's not about whiskey and beer,
and parades with flagrant cheer.
The day celebrates lives born anew,
With great hope for all, not just a few.
St. Patrick told of a love so divine.
The Irish turned from their sins and got in line.
He faced the Druids and their gods they threw down.
They worshipped Jesus in the hills and through town.
A great revival in Ireland it was.
From a slave to an immigrant just because
Patrick found the love of a Savior.
That love so changed his behavior.
He went back to Ireland to those who
made him a slave and told them he knew
the God who saw what they did but loved them too.
The Patron Saint of Ireland's heart had changed.
And his mission to tell others did not wane.
So now you know how it all came to be.
St. Patrick's Day's about changed hearts you see.
