Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

This poem is a metaphor about my children in the meaning of their
names and of their parent and grandmother. My older children taught
my youngest daughter who they adored. It is also about the appreciation
and wisdom they have learned from their grandmother. It is about their
connection to this wonderful earth.

Precious Descendants

Oh white wave
Mistress of the sea,
And you, bright fame
Of the island;

Together you teach
The one who is like God;
A heavenly flower
That blooms with your touch.

Protected under the
Wings of constancy
Rejoice, for your
Grandmother is a Pearl;

Cloaked in iridescent white,
Layers upon layers,
She shines in her
Wealth of wisdom.

Connie Marcum Wong

    A mystically unique poem which seems to have a deep profound meaning.

    You are correct. The poem eludes to the meaning of my children's names and mine and their grandmother, whose name is Margaret. It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Margaret is "pearl". My daughter. Jennifer Marie, son Robert Lyle and youngest daughter Michelle Leilani. Thank you Debra. Read more at http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Margaret#FiAlzXLiMHj27BxT.99
