i found a four leaf clover: a little celtic charm

they are said to mean hope, faith, love and luck

four of my favorite words.

the first quote recorded centering upon a four leaf clover was spoken by Sir John Melton who said “If a man walking in the fields finds any four-leafed grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”

i can think of quite a few good things i have found since.

beautiful things.

whispers of lovesick fools

tears of purifying sadness

smiles that overpower the corners of little mouths

eyes heavy with sleep induced by warmth during cold months

embraces that send demons running for their lives.

and i am thankful that the world does live under the same laws as clover

because if only one good thing happened to every 10,000 bad

it just wouldn’t be worth it
