Is that an illusive

if the wee fairy shoe cobbler

is hiding there . . .

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been
The foresight to know where you’re going
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.

Horses, Dogs, and Nature of an Irish Heart

and spirits they be;

Oh horse, oh horse!

May I fly away with thee? . . .

shamrock, and teal green.

Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore.
