Inspiration. We never know when or where it's going to hit. Sometimes, it comes from the most unlikely places ...
I was having my teeth cleaned by a new hygienist. I looked at the framed certificate on the wall. Quadelle Rose. Perhaps it is a family name, I thought, so I asked. No, she said. My parents made it up.
If my name were Quadelle
I'd fall in love with a boy
Named Jimmy Rose
and I'd marry him.
Then, I'd be Quadelle Rose.
I'd splash in sprinklers
whenever I pleased
and light sparklers in the middle of winter.
I'd speak fluently in several languages
and I'd know how to twirl a baton.
I'd cook Thai food and
Learn how to tango.
If I were Quadelle Rose
I'd wear flowers in my hair,
but never roses.
I'd smell like Spring all year round.
Oh, if I had a name like Quadelle Rose,
I'd own it.
