What is as rare As a day in Ireland
Amid Macgillycuddy peaks
Roaming through the Kingdom of Kerry
Walks could magically turn into weeks.
The mountains of Mourne in County Down
Bid my soul to relax and rest;
Those great green mountain ridges
Are like divine bridges Between my soul and God.
What is so rare As a day in Ireland
Leprecauns flitting everywhere;
While wearing the green, true happiness seen —
A St.Pat’s Day Salute to Ireland rare.
