A coin under your pillow

March 12, 2019

Dear precious child; let me present to you the truth,

for gracing me with questions, about a fallen tooth…


Worried not was I, about your literary call,

my wings have flown far, and I have read it all.


Thousands of first teeth, we must collect each day,

many Molars under pillows and Babies on a tray.


A Tooth Fairy like me has the best job of all,

as councils kindly, provide me money on a pole.


Inside a parking meter, I find local currency,

coins, save me carting cash, over land or sea.


In the morn will be reward, if directions you will follow,

a golden coin to replace a tooth, under your soft pillow.


Perhaps to save you pondering, I promise its not scary;

your tooth will be collected, by me the nice Tooth Fairy.


  • By combining Poetry & a photograph you get POETPICS or PHOTOPOETRY.

  • A phrase of philosophy integrated into a photograph = PHILOETRY
