A Year of Poems – Day 4

Did you ever stop and wonder,
what’s entailed in a name?
Why some are filled with curses,
and others filled with fame?

Did you ever pause and ponder
at the greatness in a word,
how the names of those who
do good things are pleasant when they’re heard.

Pray, stop and consider,
the power held in a phrase.
Has no one ever used three words,
which left your heart amazed?

What if each lonely letter
said more about a friend
than every crafted résumé
that he would ever send?

If names could hold such meaning,
I’d relish every sound.
I’d tap at every consonant
until a soul resounds.
