“For each petal on the shamrock, this brings a wish your way…” (Irish saying)

A St. Patrick’s Day poem is:

“For each petal on the shamrock.,
This brings a wish your way --
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.”


Authorship is unknown. The poem was printed in The Advocate (Stamford, CT) on March 2, 1988.


Wikipedia: Shamrock
A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamróg [ˈʃamˠɾˠoːɡ], which is the diminutive of the Irish word seamair óg and simply means “young clover”.

2 March 1988, The Advocate (Stamford, CT), “Recipe Exchange” by Valerie Foster, pg. C3, col. 5:
For each petal on the shamrock.,
This brings a wish your way --
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

17 March 1996, Kenosha (WI) News, “My Irish family of gardeners” by Tom Kalb, pg. C6, col. 2:
May each petal on your shamrock.
Brings a grand wish your way --
Good health, good luck and happiness
For today and every day.
