The shamrock for St Patrick's Day.
Uniquely Irish, Seamrog

I don't want to sound terse,
it could be much, much worse
but I'll try to write a clever verse.

Of shamrocks I will carp,
may sound a bit too sharp,
unlike sweet music on the harp.

In distant Ireland of all places,
they cover most of the bases,
even the art of shaving faces.
                   ~~Judi Van Gorder

The Seamrog, (Gaelic) shamrock, with its 3 leaves is said to represent not only the Holy Trinity, but also (the fruits of the spirit, faith, hope and charity), (love, valor and wit), (past, present and future) and uniquely Irish, (clever verse, music on the harp, and the art of shaving faces).
