And the joy that's everywhere,

And the earth below is gay

With its tender green th'-day,

For the whole world is Irish on the Seventeenth o' March!

St. Patrick's Day Blessings and Notes

For each petal on a shamrock
This brings a wish your way,
For health, luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

May those who love us, love us more.
And for those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he will not turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we might know them by their limping.

May your blessings far outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
No matter where you go.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

May luck be your companion
May friends stand by your side
May history remind us all
Of Ireland's faith and pride.
May God bless us with happiness
While love and faith abide.

May you always walk in the sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and into the night.

I am wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers.
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours.
Shamrocks at your doorway
For joy and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

May your days be grand
Filled with joy and laughter
And may the greatest of Irish Luck
Be with you forever after.

Top O' The Mornin' to You
May special luck and love and joy
Be with you this Saint Patrick's Day!

Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one
A pretty girl and an honest one
A cold beer, and another one!

May your thoughts be as glad as shamrocks,
May your heart be light as a song,
May each day bring you bright and happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.

May the Irish hills caress you,
May her lakes and rivers bless you,
May the luck of the Irish enfold you,
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

May St. Patrick guard you wherever you go,
and guide you in whatever you might do.
May his loving protection be a blessing to you always.

Consider making a homemade card or note. You might be surprised how much joy it can bring to a person! Everyone loves to receive a card. At your local Hallmark card store and others, you can find Saint Patrick's Day cards as well.

I was first turned on to holiday cards when I found one for my Great Aunt, who is Irish. I have since made some of my own using rubber stamps and card-making supplies. It is a lot of fun no matter how you give a card. It puts a smile on someone's face, and that is what is important. Happy Saint Patrick's Day.

Hello Denise, You and I have a few things in common, like being Irish, and loving the poem about the road rising to meet you.

I love hearing about people's family traditions like your corned beef and cabbage meal that your mother would make. In my family we have a lot of Irish and Italian, so that is something we have in common as well. Your mother sounds like a wonderful woman, like when she wanted to honor your father's paternal roots and that heritage.

Thanks for your visit here, your votes, and comment. I wish you a very Happy Saint Patty's Day!

I'm part Irish and have always loved the poem about the road rising to meet you.

My mother would make sure she had the St Paddy meal (corned beef and cabbage) and cards for my dad and kids. She was as Italian as The Godfather, but would always honor the paternal roots for my dad.

Great hub. voted up and interesting.
