Lucky the Leprechaun


When I was young I had a friend, a leprechaun was he
His name he said was Lucky, and he surely proved to be
He found a stash of gold coins hid under an old oak tree
And then because he was my friend he gave them all to me

This was written for In Other Words where Patricia has asked us to  
write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word leprechaun:
noun; (in Irish folklore) a mischievous elf, often believed to have
a treasure hoard. According to legend, if you catch a leprechaun
he will show you where the treasure is hidden.

  1. I wish!! My earliest leprechaun experience was
    Darby O'Gil and the little people.
    Had nightmares for 25
    Years.

  3. Tucker made a leprechaun box again this year but then decided to be nice and give him the gold. I guess a win? Although sure would be nice to find that pot!

    1. Ahh, Tucker has a good heart, that is worth far more than a pot of gold any day!

  4. It would be wonderful to have a generous leprechaun as a friend. I wonder if there is one living near me? Fun poem. Perfect for today. Thanks for sharing with In Other Words.

    1. Your prompt fit perfectly for a little St. Patrick's day poetry, simple as it may be. I should like to think that there are things we believed in as children that may just exist in realm our adult logical minds are unable to comprehend. Thank you for the fun place to share our creative writing each week!
