    I really love the last line in this poem. It brings it all together and inspires.

    Lovely use of the pattern and now I know something about a leprechaun’s wardrobe now. The hat isn’t green afterall.

    This poem somehow feels light and airy and very fresh and springlike and hopeful to me. My favorite lines are “wish makers/gold keepers, I also love “believe the rainbows.” I don’t think I knew about this form either, but it seems like it would be fun to try. I tried golden shovel yesterday for the first time and those are HARD! Or at least I think it’s hard to write something meaningful and stay within the format!

    That is beautiful! I especially love “wish makers/gold keepers/scanning the sky for magic”. I also had never heard of shadormas. Thank you for sharing a new type of poetry to try!
