Sons and Daughters

A:  I’ll call him AARUSH, ray of sun;
B:  And she’ll be BEA, a happy one;

C:  COLCHAS is bronze from head to toes;
D:  His oaktree brother, DARA, grows;

E:  Alive is EFA, she’s a one;
F:  And FFION is our foxglove son;

G:  There’s GUY, our clever boy the guide; 
H:  HAKIM, he’s wise - can’t be denied;

I:  She works, Our IDA, round the clock;
J:  JOANNA says her God, he rocks;

K:  Alert, our KACIE tops her class;
L:  LATISHA, such a happy lass;

M:  As MARCO thinks he’s Mars the god;
N:  New baby brother NEO nods;

O:  He’s OLAF, proud of kith and kin;
P:  And PAULA, she is small and thin; 

Q:  My QUEENIE she’s a queen - beware;
R:  He’s ROAN with the reddest hair;

S:  While SADIE, she’s a princess; wild
T:  TALULAH, she’s an awful child;

U:  As URI is a boy of light;
V:  VERONICA, her picture’s right;

W: And WENDY, she’s a friendly soul;
X:  But XANDER, he’s a fighter though;

Y:  YVETTE, she’s like a yew so tall;
Z:  And ZAK, the purest boy of all;

And now I’ve named the little dears;
I must get started – volunteers?


I’m 43, single again and live in England. I don’t have any children (as far as I know, LOL).

For Cyndi’s Z is for Zaria contest

    Jack, Congratulations with your awesome poem in one of the best contest I've seen this year. It has been an honor in viewing all of Cyndi's ABC Couplet winners. I would have never pulled off this form or idea.... * xox-PD

    hahaha, trying to make people think you have all these kids. GREAT job, Jack. Wish I could think of a really clever list to do. Once I get an idea, I will get started!! By the way, I am a wee bit o' the Irish. Scotch Iris on my mom's side, but mainly I am welsh and whatever my dad was, not sure (but partly Cherokee indian)

    This is really clever, Jack! And I love the title you've chosen, as all these names from across the globe, all representing "Sons and Daughters"! Great job! Glad I got to see it before it got scrolled off the sometimes fast moving list. Truly enjoyed and wish you good luck even though this is a winner already. Always, Annalise
