At The Pawn Shop

When I entered I wondered what I'd find
So much to look at sitting on the shelves
Perhaps if I'm lucky fate will be kind

There are some post cards with pictures of Elves
Stereos, jewelry, tools and guitars
So much to look at sitting on the shelves

I pick up a cap with a metal star
Hidden amongst all of these many things
Stereos, jewelry, tools and guitars

On each side of the star there are gold wings
I'm amazed at this treasure I have found
Hidden amongst all of these many things

I've searched for days I have looked all around 
I'm amazed at this treasure I have found
When I entered I wondered what I'd find
It seems I've been lucky fate has been kind


At The Pawn shop Contest

Modified Terzanelle to stay in line limit for contest.

    Richard, your trip to the pawn shop sounds fantastic...the Terzanelle poetry form enhances the experience. Not interested in the cards with pictures of elves? Your find sounds mysterious... congrats on your win :)

    It is so much fun to wander pawn shops and flea markets waiting to find the special item. You portrayed the search and anticipation perfectly

    Pawn shops, thrift stores, garage sales... they are all so interesting, but unfortunately are becoming more and more outdated. I remember finding a sweet solid black abacus at a yard sale... next to a bunch of other stuff I wouldn't give a second look. Good luck on the contest!
