Inspiring Poem for Kids

Lesson About Generosity

Two children were at play, and I overheard their conversation about the penny they found. That inspired me to write this poem for children.

My Penny

I found a penny upon the walk.
A rich boy I am...that was my thought.

The things I can buy at the store...
I shall not want for anything anymore.

I can travel the world to far off lands
and visit places with shifting sands.

I can sail the ocean's seven seas.
Nothing else will I ever need.

Maybe put my penny in my bank.
That's what I will do...I think.

There are many things a penny can buy,
but alas, a young lad am I.

So I will give it to the church
for the needy, for the homeless...this will work.

Count your blessing every day.
You, too, may find a penny along your way.

If you do, then remember all who need.
It's much better to give than to receive.
