What's in a name?

Autumn Rose Wood Yep, that is me Gotta thank my husband He is such a sweetie! I have had three last names But that one I like best It invokes magic and beauty And natural lullabied rest My mother, Aunts and Grandmother All strong women Picked my unchangeable first and middle They all taught me so many things, my favorites are love of poetry and lemons The sweet and the sour. Shakespeare is sometimes wrong A name Can offer us a mountain to climb A reason to strive And memories to wrap around us like a blanket during the storm.
