This is 'An Irish Tale' from the point of view of the Leprechaun. I think it's funnier than the original.

Elfwood artist Richard Svensson has created an illustration for this poem, called The Leprechaun. Check it out!

A Leprechaun's Tale

You'll not believe with your ears what happened to me

When I walked in the forest not far from the street.

Out for a stroll I went walking one night

And I caught for myself a terrible fright.

I decided when I found a fallen tree

To sit myself down and rest me sore feet.

So down I did sit and me feet I did rest

When there came such a sound as to scare me to death.

From behind me jumped a giant of such a great size

I could nay hardly believe me eyes!

He reached and he grabbed at me very self

I screeched and I screamed and I hollered for help!

He was after me gold, sure as I stand

But I got away, so quickly I ran.

I forgot all about me feet being sore

And did nay stop running 'til I reached me own door!

So believe me young Leprechauns when I tell ye this:

Big people are real; They truly exist!

Such a cute poem! Like others have mentioned, it’s a beautiful twist in pov on a familiar story. The meter that you used flows well, and your rhymes do not seem stressed in the slightest. Bravo, and kudos to you, my friend!
