The Luck of the Pennies

January 9, 2009
If you’re walking in the street
And you see a shiny speck
Pick it up and you might find
That there is luck inside it yet

Now if it’s just a sequin
Or something of that sort
Do not pick it because
Luck in those run short

Now if you are wondering
Of what it is I speak
I’m saying pick up pennies!
For their luck lasts for weeks!

Just because they’re worth one cent
Doesn’t mean they can’t be important to you
You can do much with these small tokens
Let me name a few

You can take the penny that you find
And put it in your piggy bank
Or you can throw it in a well
To make a wish where other pennies sank

All these pennies are different
Some are shiny, some are not
Others may not look like pennies
But there’s still luck inside them no matter what

This is a very pleasent poem. However, I must say that the rhythm needs work. It started out well, but got choppy about half way through. I liked the mood of the poem and I hope you continue to write and improve upon yourself!
