Lucky Charm

I have never been lucky enough
to come upon a four leaf clover....
maybe they only grow in Ireland.

Find a penny, pick it up,
and all day you will have good luck...
my fortune didn't improve by much.

I could carry a rabbit's foot
around with me in my pocket....
I guess that rabbit wasn't so lucky, though.

Every time I find a ladybug
and try to capture it in a jar....
it just flies away from me.

I could pry a horseshoe
from a pony's hoof....
which is harder than you think.

But, I think I would rather have you
as my lucky charm,
you are as rare as a four leaf clover,
you are worth a lot more than a penny,
you are as gentle as a rabbit's foot or a ladybug,
and you are luckier than a horseshoe,
because you were much easier to find.

    Hi Kelly, I found a four leaf clover once. I thought I'll just hang on to this. Walked about fifty feet or so, was crossing a road, got hit by a car. I guess the clover was lucky In a way. I only had badly bruised legs.I did like this write. I enjoyed the build up to finding your good luck charm. Well thought out as always. The piece flows so nicelyfrom start to finish. Love Is the greatest charm of all. I enjoyed this read a lot. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Mike. I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune after you found that four leaf clover. I'm glad you weren't hurt any worse. Maybe that clover was lucky after all?.... I don't know if I believe in bad luck or superstitions, but it was fun to write about. I'm glad you enjoyed this poem, my friend. Thank you for the nice comments!
