The Wisdom Penny
To be read to 3rd grade children after they have been given a shiny new Lincoln Penny
Children, you might think this is just a penny,
But it is much more, much more.
It is the Wisdom Penny
It is round, and represents the circle of life, this penny
It is flat, and represents a level mind.
It was as shiny as gold, when it was made,
And represented the brilliance of the sun, this penny.
