Irish Blessing reads...

May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and,
until we meet again, may God hold you
in the palm of His hand.

Photo Area

Your Poetry Gift can be designed with or without a cut-out opening for a photo next to the poem. A second sheet underneath the poem and photo cut-out is a heavy stock paper with the words "Place Photo Here."
  • There is no need to send us a photo. You or the gift recipient can easily add a photo after the Poetry Gift arrives. The photo is positioned in back of the opening and then taped on the paper. You have the option of attaching a photo before you give the person the gift or the person receiving the gift can easily insert the photo.

  • The photo opening is approximately 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". This size opening is perfect for a large wallet size photograph, but you can also display the most important part of a larger photo. If you do not want a photo area in your Poetry Gift, choose the No Photo Area option when placing your order.

  • When you plan to send the Poetry Gift directly to someone and you have a photo you would like displayed in the photo area, we can insert your photo if you e-mail a photo attachment to us at after you place your order. Please let us know that you are emailing us your photo when you place your order by typing that information in the "Comment" section of the order form after you enter your email address.
