Pennies in the Pond

The day I tried to give you the world,

We saw dark towers and straw huts,

Dinosaurs, mummies, and monsters,

Mastodons and mammoths,

Mice and men,

Vikings and pacifists,

Emperors and tyrants,

Gods and demons,

Evolutions and extinctions.

The day I tried to give you the world,

You flitted and flurried,

Danced and sang,

Remembering only

The pennies in the pond

And wishes they could bring.

Hope
