I wrote this little poem in 1998, in honor of my grandfather, Luther “Bunk” Stringer’s passing. I wrote a story by the same name, and will post it at a later date.
Pennies from Heaven
I found a penny today,
Just laying on the ground.
But it’s not just a penny,
This little coin I’ve found.
Found pennies come from heaven.
That’s what my Grandpa told me.
He said “Angels toss them down.”
Oh, how I loved that story.
He said when an angel misses you,
They toss a penny down,
Sometimes just to cheer you up,
To make a smile out of a frown.
So don’t pass by that penny
When you’re feeling blue;
It may be a Penny from Heaven
That an Angel’s tossed to you.
