Pot of Gold


  1. Back again this year, another brain teaser-

    Creating St. Patrick day traditions and probing fun at your leisure.

    Pay heed to the clues over the upcoming days,

    Keep in mind that the order may evoke quite a daze.

    Let’s start it off easy, a softball of a clue:

    Last year we loved Cedars and this year we do too!

  2. If you follow the clues for St. Patrick’s week fun,

    It will get you off the couch and out in the sun.

    Our limericks will rhyme, so let it be said:

    The Pot of Gold must be hidden within where the Herald is read!

  3. Keep close this one for later, if the prize is to be found,

    Not quite the same as last year- so keep your eyes off the ground!

  4. As you are off on your journey, also explore the rules and you’ll find:

    We are limited by risk, so keep that in mind!

  5. A proud son of the city who continued to serve- although early in the game might you try, A war hero who himself attended Everett High!

    What? Of no help? Too broad is this one?

    Perhaps it may help if you search World War One!

  6. If clue number 5 doesn’t provide the detail you demand,
    Add to it a John Wayne flick, titled simply ‘The Quiet Man’
  7. As this mystery unfolds- Irish themed is intended,
    Think traditional sport where the rules have been blended.
    Yes, there are links- but different tools does the bag contain,
    Not Calloway or Titleist, but saucers and chains!
