My Lucky Day

I found a quarter
on the ground.
I looked for an owner
all around.

I asked lots of people
but no owner was found.
I asked out loud,
no one made a sound.

So I guess
you might say,
that today
is my lucky day.

     Have you ever found money?  What did you do?  Have you ever lost money?  What happened?  How did you go about looking for it? 
     I think I'm a lucky person because I find money about once a week.  Usually it is pennies, but I did find $20 once.  Can you tell that money is an issue for me?  Can you write a poem about money?  Have a great Sunday and try to remember those that do not have as much as you do.  What can you do today to make it a better day for someone?


  1. Lucky Me!

    I opened my mail
    and what did I see?
    A poem--
    for little ol' me.

    A treat--
    delivered by e-mail.
    Faster than
    a jet's vapor trail.

    Poems written daily
    by a queen in her crown
    The Queen of Poetry
    who turns frowns upside down.

    Lucky me!

    Thank you Joy!
    Linda A.

  2. Linda,
    Look at you! What a treat. Thank you for sharing your lovely poem. I like rhyming 'email' with 'a jet's vapor trail.' That was very good.
    Well done.
