They named him Happiness, shortened, to Hap.
Ernest, the other, was a most solemn chap.
Hap was gregarious and Ernie was shy.
Opposite natures in twins, “Oh my!”.
The first would be popular,
The other recluse.
To expect different outcomes
Was simply no use.
They never played tricks of trading places,
‘Cuz who people ARE can’t be told by their faces.
Perhaps it was chance, but doubt remains,
If their lives would be different with other names?

What a fun way to look at twins. Got some great words in there too. Well done.
Ugh… I just corrected the wrong “their” in the piece. Either I started writing the sentence another way or just had a moment of ‘stupid’! 🤣
My brain doesn’t seem to differentiate between words that sound the same. So, I always have the wrongs ones everywhere!
I love the term ‘moment of stupid’ too lol.
Haha! That is the cutest picture to go with this verse which I loved!!! But really: how much difference does a name make? I wonder. My music teacher in school named her daughters Honey and Angel cuz naturally you’d sound silly if you took their names “in vain.” 🤔🙂
Sweet names for those babes! I always wanted to name a male dog, ‘Handsome’. I wanted to watch people’s reaction when I hollered, “Come here, Handsome!”. 😀
Thank you Dora. I think sometimes names do make differences.
I love this! 🤣 x
Pleased to hear that! 😁🤣
What a delightful verse, Susan! I agree that names do make a difference. Some children don’t like their names and change them when they become adults.
Thanks Eugenia! 😊
Brilliant this one!
Oh, this is sweet and fun!🌷
Such a lovely photo. I think they would be who they are whatever their name. Well written.
Thank-you.I believe you’re right!
Very intriguing question asked at the end there. Beautiful rhythm too.
Thank-you. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? 😊
