Vagabond Dreamer


His clothes, a bit shabby,
He has holes in his shoes.
The hat on his head
Looks downright abused.

He whistles an old tune,
Thought he'd set for a spell,
Has a pocketful of pennies
For the wishin' well.

He sits on a park bench
With that gleam in his eye,
Just thinkin' up wishes
His pennies can buy.

When his pocket is empty
He looks quite content,
With the dream's he's purchased
For just a few cents.

We can't live on wishes
Or pie-in-the-sky.
But, that vagabond dreamer
Always seens to get by.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
