                 Four-leaf-clover

When I was a little girl...

...I would sit instead of play.

Looking through the clovers...

...Waiting for the day.

Fields of promising green...

...Three, three, three.

While the other children ran...

...in the fields is where I'd be.

I searched through every clover...

...never feeling done.

After years of searching...

...I'd only find just one.

All those long days looking...

...over, over , over.

I'd take one look at you...

...and find my four-leaf clover.
