What’s in a Name

Flowing swiftly like a river from the tongue,
some words are fun to say,
words, like “Saskatchewan.”

Others muck around in your mouth,
like “burglar’ and “rural” and “isthmus”
your tongue flopping south and west.

Same goes for people’s names,
some are grating, others divine
like cacophonous Gertrude, euphonious Caroline.
