Happy St. Patrick’s Day Challenge 🍀

Alrighty, I’ve never posted one of these challenge prompts before so this is a first.

Before I get started I am fully aware that ‘Monday’s Child’ is an English nursery rhyme but growing up it was first an Irish poem to me.

My Irish Nana from Ballywalter in the North of Ireland (before emigrating to Canada) had a decorative plate that sat on her fridge. It was decked out in full Irish motif with the poem printed prominently in the center. I was fascinated by it. Almost every time we visited the plate came down off its pedestal and Nana would read it to me.

Today I ask:

“On what day of the week were you born? In what ways does the line about the day of the week you were born resonate with the person you are today?”

Poem, prose or whatever catches your fancy. I look forward to your responses. Feel free to respond in the comments section below and/or through pingback. Remember to tag your post with #spdq for quick searching.

🍀🍀Happy St. Patricks Day.🍀🍀
