There are many theories about what causes a four-leaf clover, the most popular are linked to genetics. It's not surprising that it would serve as the inspiration for one of the most beautiful poems in the Down syndrome community, "
There is no obvious explanation, all of the clover plants grew in the same soil, were exposed to the same sun and rain, etc. Mother Nature just decided to add an extra leaf to one of the clover in the clover patch. This doesn’t make it better or not as good as the other clover it just makes it different. Some people even believe it brings a person good luck when they find a four-leaf clover.". We believe that anyone who befriends someone with Down syndrome also considers themselves lucky.
