A poem about my name!

14 Comments

It’s a real treat to get anything by snail mail these days. When that envelope in the mail contains a poem, that’s a double treat. When that poem is from our own Tabatha Yeatts and it celebrates one’s own name, that’s a treat in multiples!

Tabatha sent me this poem about violets for round one of the summer poem swap. I learned history about my name that I never knew (and was inspired to be a better violet.)

Thank you, Tabatha, for organizing this summer poem swap, and for composing and sending this treasure!

Next week the round-up is hosted by Tabatha Yeatts. In honour of National Macaroni and Cheese Day on July 14th, next week’s roundup will have an optional Mac-N-Cheese theme (I’m drooling already)!

  1. Oh, that is PERFECT. What a lovely poem from Tabatha….frameable for sure. I have a very young second-cousin named Violet. I may have to share this with her….or simply borrow the idea to write one for her age. I love how they were a signature flower for an emperor…these delicate beautiful buds. Enjoy the day!

  2. The swap is a joy, isn’t it? This poem for you, Violet, about violets, is very special. The research is new to me, too, but I do know one person who’s shared that she’s made violet jelly! You are making your mark on the world, Violet, with poetic thumbprints!
