Happy St. FITZPatrick's day!

According to Irish mythology, a leprechaun can be forced into sharing his gold with you. But, of course, there is a catch. In order to convince him to share, you must keep your eyes on him constantly. If you turn your head, he's likely to vanish in the blink of an eye.

The Leprechaun
The Leprechaun is an Irish faery

From down County Cork or from far Tipperary.

They’re tiny and short,

A mere two feet in height.

They work on their shoes

And their terrible fright

Is that you will stop by
And demand all their gold

All hidden away in a
Tree’s hollow hold.
They’re tricky and clever
Turn your eyes for a moment,
This faery will flee.

A plan that is better,

Truth to be told,
Just pay him a visit

And earn your own gold!
