Another Name

Elsbeth, Elsbeth whirling in the rain
Mama gave you a silly name.
Bloomers peeking from your gown,
Naughty lass stop whirling around.

Pushing thru this hazy web, I know who
I am now,
modern words
modern clothes
I am Me.

Then I remember whirling in the rain
I knew that Elsbeth was my name.
