The shamrock on an older shore
Sprang from a rich and sacred soil
Where saint and hero lived of yore,
And where their sons in sorrow toil.
~Maurice Francis Egen
It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
And as we go a-swinging, ev'ry Irish heart is singing:
It's a great, great day...
~Roger Edens, "It's a Great Day for the Irish," , 1940
What color should be seen
Where our fathers' homes have been
But their own immortal Green?
May luck be our companion
May friends stand by our side
May history remind us all
Of Ireland's faith and pride.
May God bless us with happiness
May love and faith abide.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick of Central Iowa
Patrick's arm on...
~Alfred Percival Graves
