The Wearin' of the Green

This Poem was written by Jersey Nana.
Paint the line green
Down the middle of the street.
For here comes the parade
For the Irish elite!
With the Sons of Ireland
And their marching band,
Hear those bagpipes humming
All across the land!
But the best thing about
This Grand Old array,
Is that everyone's Irish
On St. Paddy's Day!

I really am Irish, my ancestor's came from Ireland to America in 1718.  They landed on August 4 of that year in Boston!  My many times great grandfather, Samuel, was born December 8, 1719 in Worchester, Mass.  I guess he was the first true American.

They traveled from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, where they settled for awhile, then on to Alabama and settled there for a while.  They soon left Alabama and settled in East Texas.  They made their permanent home there, never leaving again.

Yep, I'm an Irish Cowgirl.

My Irish blood has been watered down over the years but on St. Patrick's Day my blood still turns green and I've been known to dance a few jigs!

Until Next Time
Wishing you Happy Blessings



  1. Awwww, Ms. Mary, so glad to see you back posting. Love all your green. Happy St. Patty's Day to you.

    1. Thank you Deb!! Hope you got my email.

    2. Dear Mary,

      Green is my favourite colour and I just love this post! My father's parents were born in Kent, England, and I think I have, besides British ancestry, some Scottish and Irish in the mix as well. :)

  2. Hello Ms. Mary! I loved hearing about your Irish ancestry. Have fun dancing a jig or two today. :)

  3. Happy St.Patrick Day, Mary, I pray it's a blessed one!

  4. Happy St. Patrick's Day Miss Mary. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
