Royalty of the forest,
You are so commonly unique,
However you are often overlooked.
You are not longed for.
You are without a fourth leaf,
But you give me a plush blanket to lie on.
To play
To sleep
To cushion falls.
A green flower as soft as a newborns first hair,
Who always loves playing games that deceive.
We think we are lucky to find the four leaves,
You have tricked us again,
There are only three.
But your games keep us entertained and guessing.
Most make wishes to the four leaf clover,
But I make mine to you,
Lucky three leaf clover.
Because without you,
Four leaves wouldn’t seem so sweet.
