~The Beggar~

The beggar on London square;
She is old and frail and has grey hair;
She hobbles to her lair
On London square.

Her eyes hold a wise twinkle;
Her face is full of wrinkles;
She still survives there
On London square.

In her hand, she holds a hat;
When a coin drops, she's happy like that.
Age is meaningless there
On London square.

With some joy as she ends her day,
She buys her bread with the coin that lay
In the hat she holds there
On London square.

With bread in hand, she sits and sings
Of how sweet grace gave her the things
That she was given there
On London square.
This is the FIRST poem I ever wrote, when I was 12 or 13. I think it was inspired by the "bird lady" on Marry Poppins. :'D

Its a good one, if it does seem like an earlier poem. I can imagine the woman though.
