Shiny Penny On The Floor

Source

A penny, a penny,

I found on the floor.

It shines and it glistens,

Could there be some more?


I looked and I looked,

To find more loose change.

And to my amazement,

I thought it quite strange....


To see that more pennies were

All strewn about.

One here and one there,

And without a doubt....


There were quarters

And dimes, and even nickels too.

Where did they all come from,

Just out of the blue?

I started to pick up

The coins one by one.

And put in my pocket,

This is going to be fun!


As the coins were put

In my pocket with glee,

I noticed that they started

Hitting my knee.


It was then that I looked in

My pocket to see,

That it had a hole,

No free coins for me!

Hi DREAM ON thanks for stopping by and commenting! My mom told me the same thing. I would often wonder, why is it just pennies that come from heaven? What about the nickels, dimes, no wait a minute .... forget those! Let's see the dollar coins! lol I'm glad you love the humor! Have a great day!! :-)

My girlfriend has told me she has noticed that at times in her life when she is feeling down and seeking answers, she seems to always find a shinny new penny. After telling me this story I commented, " It must be God!" Why? she asked. I replied, " Every penny say's "In God We trust!" She now saves all the shinny pennies she finds!

I love finding coins. I have a silver bowl for my pennies. It is really large so I play basket. I think pennies are presents left for us on the paths of life!

Hi MSantana thanks for stopping by and commenting. I like finding coins too... preferably quarters or half dollars, but I'll settle for pennies! lol I save up my spare change as well. When my jar fills up, I go to the bank and cash it in then start all over again.

Have a great day! :-)
