Shamrock

SHAMROCK

-noun
any of several trifoliate plants, as the wood sorrel, Oxalis acetosella,  or a small, pink-flowered clover, Trifolium repens minus,  but especially Trifolium procumbens,  a small, yellow-flowered clover: the national emblem of Ireland.























With the light just so
They look real
Kissed by life and glory
Glittering softly
Sugar confections
Fancy cake garnish
Of tropical disposition.
Shy Tanzanian violets
Ready for a party
Clad in green and shamrocks.
