POEM OF THE WEEK
I'm a Little Leprechaun
I’m a little Leprechaun, look at me!
The tiniest man you ever did see.
If you ever catch me, so it’s told,
I’ll give you my pot of gold!
In March the wind blows down the door
And spills my soup upon the floor
It laps it up and roars for more
Blowing once, blowing twice
Blowing chicken soup with rice
Mariposa School Song
May your troubles be less and your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness, come through your door.
And may you have luck wherever you go,
And blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.
May wind be at you back and sun be overhead.
May friends be at your side wherever you are led.
When Irish Eyes are Smiling
When Irish Eyes are smiling,
Sure it's like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter,
You can hear the fairies sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
But when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure they'll steal your heart away!
I’ve been told,
Somebody stole my pot of gold.
One, two…guess who!
