The Irish have long been known for the "gift of gab". They have a creative way with words that ranges from the beautifully touching ballad to the belly-laugh limerick. In honor of U.S. National Poetry Month this April 2010, Small-leaved Shamrock will host a Poetry Party.
Have a bit of Irish verse that has touched your soul? Know a hilarious limerick that you'd like to share (in good taste, of course)? How about your favorite Irish blessing? Share a poem in the Irish tradition on your blog, and submit it to the poetry carnival. Can't find something that fits with the theme of your blog? Write a poem of your own and share it with us.
