Like the wishing well of old, we keep hoping.


There in the plaza a fountain stood

Where people tossed coins

And for favors asked return.

But somehow forgot in time.

 

For we wish for so many things

And are blessed with but a few.

So toss a coin, for you'll never know

It might be answerd, one day for you.

Good to see you back and with such splendid work. Thank you for sharing not only great poetry but also the history of the fountain of which I was unaware.

Imagine how much some of those old coins that have been thrown into some of the old fountains around the world are now worth...but if removed would that not negate the wish...? e

Nicely stated George. for some reason your thoughts [here] remind me of something Emerson wrote in his essay about friendships. "For perfect friendship may be said to require natures so rare and costly, so well tempered each, and so happily adapted, that very seldom can its satisfaction be realized." In my experiences (limited though they are) the same holds true for wishes. Still ... Regards ... richard

Nice semi-upbeat poem. Think I will dig deep and throw a coin, or is that three coins . . . in the fountain? Eh!
