Coin Collector Poem

This was given to me by a little old lady after I purchased her coins. She found the coins years after her husband passed. It touched my heart, I think it may touch yours as well.

A Man’s Hobby

A rare old coin is a happy find;
Each one added helps content the mind.
Some like copper, nickel, silver, and gold;
I’ll go for anything that’s valuable and old.
Our wives think we are nuts, and sort of dry and lazy;
The security we offer might even seem quite crazy.
They think each time we invest a dollar or maybe ten;
Their wardrobe should be extended and really — to no end.
The poor girls don’t realize, the dough we did save;
Until they plant us deep down in our grave.
And only then, after planted, they will thank us.
For the money we saved,
Our effort soon forgotten for the fine road we have paved.
