This poem by an unknown author has inspired generations of Penny lovers and those who could use a bit of inspiration.
Today I found a penny,
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 your 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.
