Leprechaun Love -- Imaginary Garden Challenge


Love in the Time of __Leprechauns___
(my choice)
 
They'd dance the night away
They'd trip you up any day
 
How were they in lover's lane
Peak in? Beat you with a cane
 
For sure they kissed and kissed
And kissed some more, never missed
 
Mustn't peel hat, pants, or dress
Green masquerade always fresh
 
With a cuppa Irish brew
They'd loosen up, let it go
 
Got things going then, embrace
cuddled, muzzled, kissed a face
 
Things went up, others came down
Masquerade began to frown
 
Nothing's changed, same as today,
Let youngsters' passions play

Ah, those naughty leprechauns! Loved the (ahem) sprightly nature of this piece. ;-)

There is something quite authentic about these leprechauns--they are not to be controlled! A smile. k.

Sounds like fun Jim ~ I like the rhyming verses specially:

With a cuppa Irish brew
They'd loosen up, let it go

I am enrolled in our industry's program, which is a professional designation if you complete it ~ There are 8 courses to be passed and I am on my 6th now ~ I work in the insurance business and I would like to keep on updating my knowledge every year ~ I haven't been in school for years now but I have been taking up courses every year, mostly self study along my industry ~

Have a good week Jim ~ Its cold here, yuck ~
