Lucky SOP Buddies Poem

Lucky SOP Buddies Poem

By Nancy Lee Wolfe (HR Development/Content Manager)


Two little bears were talking

Out near Lincoln Park today.

I eased up very softly

And heard the wee one say,

Now, Teddy, please don`t be that way.

I know your luck`s been thin.

But the Shamrock and the berries

Will soon be growing here again. "

She soothed his head.  He turned and smiled.

He told her not to fret,

All we luck Irish know d`score

A`fore we bet. " 

Ye can`t be sure o` much, " he said,

Nor trust ere life will be balanced.

Ye can`t much plan on d`will of God

Cause, at times, it`s not even-handed. "


What we lucky Irish bear "ave found

Is there`s calm a`fore a storm.

That things look better in d`mornin`.

We`ll be safe and dry and warm. "


I heard him say, as they walked away,

And you instantly came to my mind,

Having friends in life means believin`

That we`re lucky in double-time. "
