an irish blessing

in honor of our rainy St. Patrick's Day...
May the blessing of the rain be on you--
the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit
so that all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the blessing of the rain be on you--
thee great heavy rains.
May they beat upon your spirit
and wash it fair and clean,
and leave there many a shining pool
where the blue of heaven shines,
and sometimes a star.
This blessing caught my eye going through a quick search of Irish blessings this morning, and then I found that Zoe had coincidentally also posted this same one today, reminding me of it so I just had to pass it on as well. I think it's beautiful, and especially fitting for the gloomy rainy day we have here...
