I found a shiny penny today and picked it up, so I loved seeing that you had written a poem about one.

Here is a quickly drafted poem in response to yours about what’s been happening with the ones I’ve picked up:

I found a shiny penny on the ground
and showed my daughters what I’d found.
We took it home and put it in a jar,
but I didn’t know what we’d do with it —
a penny doesn’t go very far.
I said to my daughters,
“Let’s save everything we find until Jade’s graduation,
then we’ll have a big celebration.”
When that day arrived, we counted the money carefully
and realized it would go the farthest
if we gave it to charity.
