Four-Leaf Clover
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Aidan was up to his elbows in clover. He lay under a tree in a clover patch in the park. The clover patch was soft and cool in the shade of the tree. It felt good to lie in that place counting clover leaves. So far each short, thin stem held only three leaflets. If only he could find a four-leaf clover, he would have good luck. Surely there were a few four-leaf clovers in this patch!
 
2     Then Aidan shivered. He felt as if someone were watching him. His gaze moved from the clover patch to the tree. His eyes widened. Sitting on a tree root grinning at him was a leprechaun! [LEP-rih-Kahn]
 
3     "What might ye be looking for, my lad?" asked the small fellow in the big green hat.
 
4     "I might be looking for a four-leaf clover," Aidan replied.
 
5     "Ah, then it's luck that ye seek!" the little man cried, rubbing his red beard.
 
6     "Of course," Aidan said, sitting up. "Everyone knows that four-leaf clovers are lucky. If I find one, my luck will change! I will find toys instead of losing them. I will be the first one picked for teams instead of the last. I will never drop my lunch tray, and I'll always be served my favorite foods."
 
7     The leprechaun tilted his head. "Four-leaf clovers are hard to find. There are other lucky charms, you know. Have you tried a lucky horseshoe?"
 
8     "Too heavy."
