Linda is what I am called.
It is a name given by my father.
Not Kathleen as my mother thought.
Dirty trick, some would say,
Although my mother loved the last-minute change.
Alice is from my grandmother,
Loving in every way.
It suits me as I use it still
Coveting time spent with her and
Enjoying her quick wit.
Following along my poetic journey,
Obviously your choice,
Will without doubt bring some fun,
Learning my passions and quirks.
Everyone is invited to
Release a smile, a tear, or two.
