The Shamrock

The Shamrock

He stands the proud sentinel,
No more the Irish rover.
True to his love of sweet Violet
They spend their days in clover.

With thanks to Tess Kincaid at Magpie Tales for the inspiration.

Isobel! How could he not be happy? Loved by Violet and 'in clover'.
Use of the prompt was perfect with all the elements included with a double entende for extra interest!
