Four of us are in your field
But our differences keep us at yield
First, a one that is no fool
Though he resembles a gardener’s tool
Next, one difficult to split in two
And a girl once had one as big as her shoe
Then, to the mind, one’s a lovely bonder
And truancy makes it grow fonder
Last, a stem connecting dots of three
Knowing all this, what are we?
The four suits in a deck of standard playing cards
The Spade is a gardener’s tool.
The Diamond is the hardest gem to break. “Little Girl and Queen” is a Mother Goose rhyme, in which the Queen gave the girl a large diamond for picking the Queen some roses.
The Heart bonds with the mind to form love. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
The Club, or Clover, is three dots connected around a stem.
