Clover

A four leaf clover would bring good luck but also had an added bonus as it was believed it would provide the owner with second sight - the power to see witches and fairies. The three leaf clover has been linked to the Holy Trinity since St. Patrick used it when explaining his doctrine on the subject (although some also believe he used a piece of wood sorrel). In some parts of Britain finding a four-leaf clover also heralds the possibility of meeting your true love on the same day. Enhancing your good luck it is said can be achieved by passing the lucky clover to someone else. Possessing a four leaf clover was also supposed to help those trying to avoid military service. "One leaf for fame, one for wealth, one leaf for a faithful lover, And one leaf to bring glorious health - All are in the four-leaf clover".
