Shiny Penny On The Floor

Updated on November 12, 2013

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 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! :-)

      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!

      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!

      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!! :-)
