There are different kinds of words
With names the same as you.
Nouns are any thing you name:
A cat, a dog, a shoe,
A city, or a country,
A feeling, or a zoo.
Frequently a signal
Will tell you that a noun
Is coming down the road of speech
Before you hear the sound.
Eight of these are common;
You hear them every day.
They tell you that a speeding noun
Is coming fast your way.
A house, an owl,
The house, my home,
Our house, their owl,
Your house, its home.
These noun signals can determine
If it is a noun.
They are ...
Maternal seasons come at last -
To each belong a year,
Though time cannot undo the past -
Time-washed by maternal tear.
Acknowledgment for what I owe -
Regret for the unperceived
Unlimitedly now I show -
Belated hope achieved.
The words I’ve thrown out to the wind
