Poet's Notes about The Poem

Veronica Escalante, a very talented poetess who calls herself Ronnie, posted yesterday a series of eight nursery rhymes composed of names from the Toronto telephone book! Incredible! What will she think of next?

So anyway, I hope she will not be upset if I try one of my own. We poets are supposed to inspire each other, aren't we?

My hometown of Kaysville is not even big enough to have its own phone book, so I found these names in the Davis County Directory: This phone book is less than one inch thick, including the yellow pages. A bigger phone book would have a better choice of names, but I had to make do with what I had!
