Today, one of Algy’s closest and oldest friends celebrates his 86th birthday!
So Algy looked carefully through all his poetry books, and found this special poem to bring his friend extra luck on his birthday and in the year ahead xxx

         I know a place where the sun is like gold,
             And the cherry blooms burst with snow,
          And down underneath is the loveliest nook,
             Where the four-leaf clovers grow.

          One leaf is for hope, and one is for faith,
             And one is for love, you know,
          And God put another in for luck—
             If you search, you will find where they grow.

          But you must have hope, and you must have faith,
             You must love and be strong – and so—
          If you work, if you wait, you will find the place
              Where the four-leaf clovers grow.

[Algy is reading the poem Four-Leaf Clover by the early 20th century American poet Ella Rhoads Higginson.]
