Serendipitous Sally from Gwent
knew not what the word really meant
She thought she was lucky
and really quite plucky
but that is as far as it went
serendipity. If you find good things without looking for them, serendipity — unexpected good luck — has brought them to you. Serendipity does not come from Latin or Greek, but rather was created by a British nobleman in the mid 1700s from an ancient Persian fairy tale.
