Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a grand way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope that you are fine!
Well, the hidin’ of the wee folk,
‘Twas, just last time, of what we spoke.
I showed you some grand hidin’ spots,
And that I really do have lots!
I said I’d show you more again,
And that I would let you know “when!”
Well, now is “when,” so you can know
More hidin’ spots to you I’ll show!
These spots are “hidin’s”, as we say,
Just so you know our wee folk way!
I showed you holly in one place…
a stairwell, and a curtain space…
Some pillows and fine mountain mist…
Grand trees and boulders, by sky kissed…
Cool forest stream and rock ledge cracks…
Such fine, grand spots to eat your snacks!
But then more hidin’s you did see,
And these are what all those would be…
Fine flowers are a great go-to…
Red leaves and big green leaves will do…
Great hidin’ in day lilies, too…
Lots of grand space for me and you!
When moon comes up, it’s really fine…
Easy hidin’ with less sun’s shine!
Of course, you know that it is true,
Grand shamrocks always do well, too!
Many rock ledges can be found,
They give great hidin’s all around!
So you can see that we can find
Some ways to work, and we don’t mind,
Because God really counts on us
To do our work without a fuss!
The Greatest Treasure of the Gold,
The Treasure from the tales of old,
Is what we, wee folk, are Guardians of…
Our work giv’n us by God above.
For all mankind we must take care,
For gold makes blind some senses where
It will cause harm if some did know,
So we must help the gold not show!
Great weakness comes when greed takes root…
Sometimes hate grows ‘cause of gold loot.
We, Leprechauns, know this is true,
And to protect…we want to do.
Uh, oh, I think someone is near…
But I know that nothing’s to fear.
I know a hidin’s all I need…
I’ll go to one with such great speed!!!
All sorts of green will always do,
Like bushes, big plants, grasses, too…
Thickets are great hidin’ places…
Lots of hidden hidin’ spaces!
Sometimes if there’s a Church nearby,
I love to hide there…climb up high!
So many wondrous places there,
Special to God, and peaceful where
Reverence is most for Him, our King,
Who, for us, all His Love does bring.
But that is not always the case,
That I’ll be near a holy place,
Such as a Church, to be so near.
So then I run without a fear,
To plants and trees and flowers fine,
And often I find a grand pine,
Which hides me well, and safe I be,
Except if my red hair you see!
There’s always lilac bushes, too…
Or spearmint leaves will always do!
So, as you see, no need to fuss…
God does provide…take care of us!
Just like He will do for me now,
Because I’m hungry and know how
Some juicy berries will help me,
And I’ll no longer hungry be!
So, I’ll go to the berry patch,
And see what berries I can snatch!
I know, me Mum, she will not mind!
She always grows my fav’rite kind!
So, I can just go pick and eat,
And just enjoy my berry treat!
I am so glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #37)
