leprechaun-irish-clip-art


Shamrock (noun)
shamrock [sham-rok]


noun
1. any of several trifoliate plants, as the wood sorrel, Oxalis acetosella, or a small, pink-flowered clover, Trifolium repens minus, but especially Trifolium procumbens, a small, yellow-flowered clover: the national emblem of Ireland.

Origin: 1565-75; < Irish seamróg, equivalent to seamair clover + -óg diminutive suffix

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
