I get this “touchy feely” poem every winter from Mom, and every winter I love rereading it.
It’s a beautiful poem and very well written. Enjoy.

In the News - Morning Glory

Utah city renames street due to sexual connotation
LEHI, Utah (AP) The Lehi City Council has renamed Morning Glory Road after a technology company planning to relocate to the street raised concerns about the name’s sexual connotation.
Council members in the city about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City voted unanimously last month to change the name to Morning Vista Road. Minutes from the meeting show that Xactware Solutions Inc., which provides software for the insurance industry, asked for the name change so that the road would fit with its “international corporate image.”
“Morning glory” is the name of a flower and part of the title of a popular 1990s song from British rock band Oasis. But the term is sometimes used to describe male arousal.
Councilman Johnny Revill, who moved to approve the resolution at the Dec. 11 meeting, told the Salt Lake Tribune that he didn’t know about the term’s slang meaning previously but was happy to appease Xactware officials.
“That name has a negative meaning for some reason,” Revill said. “When you use the word, there is a different meaning that can be taken from that.”
