Four leaf clover

FOUR LEAF CLOVER

I know a place where the sun is like gold, 
And the cherry blossoms burst with snow,
And down underneath is the loveliest nook,
Where the four-leaf clovers grow.

One leaf is for hope, and one is for faith,
And one is for love, you know,
And God put another in for luck, –
If you search, you will find where they grow.

But you must have hope, and you must have faith,
You must love and be strong – and so,
If you work, if you wait, you will find the place
Where the four-leaf clovers grow.  

 Ella Higginson  (1890)
