A Beggar Met A Poet


Said the beggar to the poet,
"I'd like a quarter, please."
Said the poet to the beggar,
"Your eyes are like blue seas."

Said the beggar to the poet,
"I need coffee, not your verse."
Said the poet to the beggar,
"Only love will quench your thirst."

Said the beggar to the poet,
"Coffee's just a quarter, see."
Said the poet to the beggar,
"Coffee's cheap, but words are free."

Said the beggar to the poet,
"This conversation's through."
Said the poet to the beggar,
"My heart goes out to you."

Said the beggar to the poet,
"Then help me, if that's so."
Said the poet to the beggar,
"I have, more than you know."

Then the poet walked away,
still feeling mighty blessed.
And at the time, the beggar,
he never would have guessed

that years later he'd still recall
the man who from the start,
hadn't reached inside his pockets,
but had reached inside his heart.


(C) 1998, Arden Davidson

I am trying to find a publisher or agent
to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
