Poem: Irish Blessing

May the blessed light be on you, light without and light within.

May the blessed sunlight shine on you and warm your heart until it glows like a great fire.

So that a stranger may come and warm himself at it, and also a friend.

May God always bless you, love you, and keep you.


  1. What a beautiful thought that strangers and friends can warm themselves with the glow of the fire in my heart! Thank you for sharing this.

    1. Ah, the Irish have great proverbs of friendship expressed so warmly.
