A Very Old Four-Leaf Clover

“Oh dear,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “It is St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t know where it is. I can’t find it anywhere.”

Grand Old Leprechaun was looking for his four-leaf clover. Now, this wasn’t just any four-leaf clover. This four-leaf clover has been passed down from generation to generation. His four-leaf clover was so old that it was missing one leaf.

Four-leaf clovers are very important to leprechauns. They provide them with not only good luck but also good fortune.

A father leprechaun passes his four-leaf clover to his first born on their 21st birthday. Grand Old Leprechaun still had a few years before Annie, his first and only child turns 21.

Grand Old Leprechaun searched the entire house from top to bottom. Here was no sign of it anywhere. He was starting to get frantic.

“I have to find it,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I can’t have it missing on St. Patrick’s Day of all days. I am a leprechaun and not just any leprechaun. I am Grand Old Leprechaun.”

“Father,” said Grand Old Leprechaun’s daughter, Annie leprechaun. “What is the matter? I can hear you all the way down the hallway.”

“Have you seen my four-leaf clover?” asked Grand Old Leprechaun. “I can’t find it anywhere.”

“No I haven’t,” said Annie. “However, there is a three-leaf clover on the chain around your neck.”

“Oh my,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, foolishly. feeling his neck. “That’s it. I forgot I put it on a gold chain.”

“But it only has three leaves,” said Annie.

“One of its leaves are missing,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.

“Why” asked Annie Leprechaun.

“If you were a four-leaf clover and were over 200 years old, I am sure you’d be missing a leaf or two,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.


 

Moral of this Story:

  • Try not to forget where you place important things.
  • Example: Grand Old Leprechaun forgot that he put his 200 year old four-leaf clover on a gold chain around his neck.
