Roger Horsch Poems
The Little Leprechaun
There once was a little leprechaun
who was short, very tricky and green
No one could catch this leprechaun
for, he was seldom ever seen
He played a magical wooden flute
that, at times would fill the air
You could sometimes hear the music he played
even though he was not there
They say that leprechauns live in hollowed out trees
just inside the forests edge
But, we'll never know exactly where
for, that's part of their sacred pledge
To hide from every person in sight
whether they...be young or old
That's the only way to hide away
A Mother's Promise
I promised I'd always love you
from the day I gave you birth.
I promise I will love you more
Than anything on Earth.
I promise I will be there
Every morning when you wake.
I promise the love I give to you
I'll never, ever take.
You are my life
