Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Author's Note: I wrote a stream of consciousness and then turned it into a poem.  This was a memory that I had from school on St. Patrick's Day when I was little.  

Back to the time in kindergarten
It was Saint Patrick's Day 
You wore green shirts and socks
As you arrived to school
Saw a large green mob

Day started normal
Walked into class
Shaving cream pictures on mirrors
Notes left around
Toilet paper thrown everywhere
Desks, books, chairs flipped over
"Who did this?"

Recess, we scavenge to find
Little clues here, there
"I saw something move!"
Found hats, found shoes, found signs
But no real leprechauns

Going home
Tomorrow will be another day
Go green today
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!


  1. You must have had a really fun teacher to set up an elaborate fun way to spend St. Patrick's.

  2. Good memory Mai! I so remeber doing that! Good times but anyways good puncuation.
