Our August

Augustine was the name chosen
should this new arrival be a girl
but as her mother laboured
she knew, with certainty
there would be no “ine”

She is August, born in May
esteemed and venerable
a name fit for a leader –
I can attest to her ability
to run the show –
definitely rules my heart.

(For Eugi’s Causerie Weekly Prompt: August.)

  1. Aww, August is a beautiful name and she is adorable. That’s interesting your sister’s name is June when she was born in September but then June is a lovely name. Thank you for joining in, VJ.
