Irish Chess Blessing

May you always be on the move
May your knights have strong unassailable outposts
May your bishops’ diagonals be long and unblocked

May your rooks control important half  open files
May your queen be centralize and out of harms way

May your king always have luft 
May your castle king position weather all pawn storms and keep you safe

May your passers be outside, protected, and unblocked
May your pawns always be connected

May you have a good move as long as you want to play
And never long for a good move as long as you want

Always remember to forget the moves that made you lose
But never forget the novelties you played that made you win

Always remember to forget the openings that proved to be untrue
But never forget the openings that stuck by you

May your worst game of your future be no worse than a hard fought draw
May you best game of your future end in a smashing mating attack

May you have a good opponent to play as long as you live
And not want an opponent as long as you play

May your back rank be strong and fortified
May your defenses and attacks always be steadfast
May you never lose the initiative
May your sacrifices be correct
May your king always have the opposition 

May all the above be true, except when you play Hangin

 May God be with you and bless you,
May you see your children's children,
May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.


 Irish Blessing - Happy Saint Patrick's day
