Shamrock > Clover


Today, I bought a lucky shamrock

or so I thought

until I got to the checkout

where the clerk told me it was a sell out

not a real shamrock, but a four-leaf clover

the real thing has never come over

from the fair isle of Erin

and all the while, that plant had us stariní

four leaf clovers bring luck too, Iíd say

canít you remember how in childhood they were fey?

although my clover did not come over from the fair green isle

I have now had it quite a while

but it has brought me only bad luck

and that really sucks.

LOL. I could hear a brogue as I read it. Despite the sourness of the last lines, I still enjoyed the read.

If you truly believe in something it will bring you luck Janet
The best thing to believe in is God, and yourself...
They say a lucky hare's foot is quite lucky too...lols

I am of celtic descent and this "rings" within my soul for some reason. Thank you, Janet. Love and peace and good fortune to you,

It's the time for clover and the four leaf one is golden. I recall sitting for hours in patches of clover seaching for the elusive four leaf clover. It occupied the beter part of a day.

Rememebering this is like a dream with the sunshine squinting my eyes and popping out with freckles the longer I stayed involved in the clover.

Thank you for this nostalgic moment.

This poem leads One to Nature's Home... "Shamrock > Clover" takes a trip to wisdomland and fantasy.

I like the themes of Your works, Poet!

Keep posting... Your writings always instruct and inspire.

In gratitude and reverent admiration.
