Katherine - Poem by Glenn Bagshaw
Those given names when chosen seem to click
with promise when the child arrives. Then worn,
the name's a mirror not a blindfold pick!
Know they're like babies: needed, almost born
as well. What psychic skills do parents share
in choosing a handle to fit their child?
The longer humans bear the name they wear,
the blend's more sure to merge in person styled.
Or is it that the parents recollect
what names imply? Teach infants, then, to meet
who they'll become? So the parents reflect,
repeat, form child. Skill crafts the kids we greet!
Katherine and her name beautifully make clear-
there's picture proof- her parents held her dear!
