Four Leaf Clovers

Four leaf clovers in my yard,
Need good luck to come to me.
Finding them can’t be so hard,
So why is it that I can’t see?

Everything blends into a luscious green,
Three buds are all over the place.
There must be four leaf ones in between,
Maybe it’s right in front of my face.

I walk and walk and look and look,
Time rushes by in a flash,
Hope good luck finds me soon,
Buried within all of this grass.

At last, what’s that over there?
A magical four leaf clover stands tall,
It’s so beautiful and rare,
Maybe good things will come after all.
