Charmed Life

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters - JU­DITH HAL­NAN

The story ‘Chance En­coun­ters’ (Au­gust) took me back on a jour­ney from over 80 years ago. Would my four-leaf clovers still be there? Would they have sur­vived the count­less moves? Did they fall out on our way to Aus­tralia? Rush­ing back to my copy of Pal­grave’s Golden Trea­sury, wherein I care­fully placed my four-leaf clovers for safe­keep­ing many moons ago, I dis­cov­ered

them se­creted among the works of Mar­lowe, Mil­ton, Ben John­son, Keats and Shel­ley and let my imag­i­na­tion soar with words from the past.
