I'll tell you a plan for gaining wealth,
Better than banking, trade or leases —
Take a bank note and fold it up,
And then you will find your money in creases!
This wonderful plan, without danger or loss,
Keeps your cash in your hands, where nothing can trouble it;
And every time that you fold it across,
'Tis as plain as the light of the day that you double it!
A side of Poe, I did not know! GREAT!
a different side of color on this poem.It is light but wonderful words
Hahahahahahahahahahaha. Well, tis good to learn something new everyday. I had no idea Poe could be so funny in an incisive way
I agree with Sandra. I didn't know the lighter side of Poe. For him: In cold of night In basement home Sits his darker side Waiting for the light
There's a note of satire in these lines which is subtle and sharp.
It did not occur to me until now that by folding a banknote in two, you can double your money. I must try it. A sparkling, witty poem.
Very nice poem. Like it
Keeps your cash in your hands, where nothing can trouble it; And every time that you fold it across, nicely penned.10
