I, Finney, say, “Hello! Hello!”
This time of year, I guess you know,
The weather’s warm and ev’ry day
We have so much fun time to play.
And, yes, we still get our work done,
Before we go and have some fun!
Daíthí and Pronshi are my Buds!
We’re full of life…we are NOT duds!
We’re cousins, too. We’re Family.
The bond is deep. I’m sure you see.
We, Leprechauns, love to play ball!
No need to be too tall, at all!
We run, we catch, we kick, we throw,
Playin’ the best that we could know.
The games are fun; we play outside.
We love to play the game of “Hide!”
Whoever’s it must try to find
Where we do hide…sometimes behind
The one who’s it, but who can’t see
Where we are hiding…where we’ll be!
Then, when we see that he can’t see,
We run back where it’s “safe” to be!
When we get tired playin’ “Hide,”
We still love to just stay outside!
So, then we get our ball to play;
To try to share is the best way.
Then someone throws after we pick
Who’ll try to hit it with a stick!
First up is Daíthí — first to hit!
He’s sharp and keen and full of wit!
Then if the ball flies high and far,
We’ll think this hitter is a star!
But…if this hitter gets tagged out,
We just play on, no time to pout.
But then we also play kick-ball.
The hardest part is not to fall!
To run and give the ball a kick…
Hard and fast…that does the trick!
Here Pronshi leads off with a kick,
And with this game there is no stick!
We kick and run to move the ball.
Playin’ together is the call!
But when we play we must take care…
Watch out for others and play fair.
Another fav’rite game to play
Is Bounce and Shoot a certain way.
I do quite well to play this game…
My shooting skills have earned me fame! 😉
We make a throw and hope the ball
Goes right between two trees so tall!
It’s not as easy as it sounds.
The ball can go right out of bounds!
But, truth be told, it’s just plain fun
To play so free ‘fore day is done!
When we get home, we’re glad to be
At our grand meal with Family!
We all thank God for blessings giv’n
To each of us from Him in Heav’n.
So, we have talked now of some play
That might just happen on a day.
We, Leprechauns, are happy, too,
To just have time to talk with you!
I, Finney, love that we could talk,
And now I think I’ll take a walk!
I hope you’re peaceful for today.
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote # 26)
