A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
Sure, a little bit o' Heaven fell from out of the sky one day and nestled on the ocean in a spot so far away. And the angels found it, sure it looked so sweet and fair. They said, "Suppose we leave it, for it looks so peaceful there!" So they sprinkled it with star dust, just to make the shamrocks grow. 'Tis the only place you'll find them, no matter where you go. Then they dotted it with silver to make its lakes so grand, and when they had it finished, they called it Ireland.
Saint Patrick was said to have used the three-leafed shamrock to illustrate the Holy Trinity. He explained in his sermons that the clover represented how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit were all separate parts of a single entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day, March 17.
