A Poem by L.A. Carey

A meaningful name

Clarice is your name
Though it is not really
But you always seemed Clarice to me
When I think of Clarice
I think of the Springtime
Of wine-colored lips
And no waning of smiles
Clarice is a name not given to many
It denotes wind chimes
And tinkling bells
I believe Clarice is a hidden gem
A ripened fruit on a branch too high
She wrinkles her nose
At the cares of the world
Clarice cries to heaven
To make Earth more heavenly
She bows her head to honor the brave
Though her head is held high
Through her bold declarations
Clarice is a beauty
And a natural love
Thank you, Clarice
You are too aptly named
