1943 NICKEL

                      1943 NICKEL


 A nickel I came upon, old is its age,


 Dirty and worn, 1943 had a name.


 When it was made, which first pocket did hold,


 A celebrity of movies or a farmer tired at night.


 Could it have been the great Joe Dimaggio, 


 As time went by possibly a singer or Olympian.


 A little boy had a nickel in his pocket, grew did he,


 A famous writer he became, a 1943 nickel, where could 
 Could it be?

 Beyond seventy years this silver looking coin has 
 Traveled,

 Today it rests with me, who held onto it in 1943?
