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 
  It be?

  Beyond seventy years this silver looking coin has 

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