Welcome to Winslow Elementary!

BEE
The Shamrock

It's said the fairies who abound
Upon old Erin's shore
Planted the three leaf shamrock once
To show the love they bore
For Erin's good and patron saint,
Patrick who saved their isle,
And drove out the snakes that ran the place
By his proper saintly style.
Sure, and the faires did their duty
In a fine good way!
What better gift could they have given
Than the shamrock for is day?
It's said that when his birthday comes
The fairies dance all night.
Maybe ye better look next time
If the moon is proper bright. 
And how St. Patrick must have smiles
When the little people came
To honor him with their applause,
And call him by his name!
Sure and he loved them, every one,
And I doubt not on his day
He comes back to old Erin's shore
To watch the fairies play.
