Names Have Meaning, a Poem by James Strauss

 

Names Have Meaning

 

by James Strauss

 

Magnolia,
Lobos Marinos,
Flowering sea wolves.
Cabrillo,
Capistrano,
Avenues of cheese.
The roads,
Names in my life,
Meaning of my world.
Lake Shore Drive,
Meadow Ridge Circle,
English came late.
Where lived has merit,
Names have meaning,
Meanings unknown,
Life unknown.
