St. Patrick's

by Linda Jenkinson

Shamrock in hand,
the three leaves fluttered as
Patrick explained the trinity.

As he expounded
the staff he carried took
root and grew into a tree.

In Ireland, Aspatria (the Ash of Patrick)
is clad in Celtic mystery.

It keeps the faith and keeps the feast
St.Patrick's Day, March 17.
