I’ve been working on building my endurance back up by going out running and it seems every time I sit down to stretch I happen upon a four leaf clover! I have found three this week! (I’m all about any extra luck that wants to head my way!)
Did you know that each of the leaves of a lucky clover are said to stand for something? I didn’t either until I was told this week! I tried to come up with a little poem about it…
Hidden in a patch of green,
shielded from the world, unseen,
a legend lies for eyes quick and keen.
Four gifts this legend brings to those
who pay attention, stop and slow,
and pause to see the earth below.
The first is faith, the second hope
for trusting in things with a larger scope.
The third is love, the fourth brings luck,
so your heart may find its place and never run amuck.
The four leaves of a fresh grown clover
reward the lucky few who see
past all the other grass and leaves
to where they hide and choose to be.
If you trust the legends…
So what do you believe?
