“For each petal on the shamrock, this brings a wish your way…” (Irish saying)

A St. Patrick’s Day poem is:
   
“For each petal on the shamrock.,
This brings a wish your way—
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.”

   
Authorship is unknown. The poem was printed in The Advocate (Stamford, CT) on March 2, 1988.
       
 
Wikipedia: Shamrock
A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamróg [ˈʃamˠɾˠoːɡ], which is the diminutive of the Irish word seamair óg and simply means “young clover”.
       
2 March 1988, The Advocate (Stamford, CT), “Recipe Exchange” by Valerie Foster, pg. C3, col. 5:
For each petal on the shamrock.,
This brings a wish your way—
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

May each petal on your shamrock.
Brings a grand wish your way—
Good health, good luck and happiness
For today and every day.
