« WEDNESDAYS WITH DENISE: JANUARY 11, 2023 | Main | Jan Steen, "The Drawing Lesson," circa 1665. »

Why L is a female ...?
Why not a Male...

This is the reason that people don't like poems...
I never blame them,
They want to read something that makes them thrilled...!
They don't want to confuse their minds with puzzles like letter L
Being Physician I like to poet simple stanzas...
That even the Brind...illiterate can hear without reading...
Trying to learn and rehearse...

Sylva Portoian, MD

Aesthetically the feminine is vastly superior in the naming of ocean liners or hurricane. But the category of "the Brind" is so novel that it canceled out my objection to the main point of the doctor's post. So thank you, Dr Portoian.
