NaPoWriMo Day 14

Today’s prompt (which you can read here) was to explore your first or last name.

My maiden name is Jones. My father was born in Aberystwyth, Wales. I felt a bit frivolous today so I have given you a ditty all about Joneses!

The photo above is a very old one taken when I was about 6 on a family holiday in Wales – it shows the beautiful coastline of Borth and the Dyfi Estuary in the distance.


Grace Jones, Tom Jones, Davy, Brian,

mysterious Mrs Jones (in that song, Me and…)

Griff Rhys, Toby, Norah too

(and in case you didn’t know, her Mum’s called Sue).

Terry, Tommy Lee, Catherine Zeta;

if you can bear a dragon, we better add Peter.

Quincy, John Paul, Booker T,

Scooby’s Fred Jones and Rickie Lee.

The world wasn’t enough for Dr Christmas Jones;

the world stopped panicking for Corporal Jones.

Aled, Shirley, Ruth and Gemma,

David Bowie, obvs the best ever.

That Rob Brydon is a secret Jones too;

Samantha, Indiana and Jack are pretty cool.

Don’t forget Bridget, the funniest Jones.

Did I mention that one in the Rolling Stones?

I’ve hardly touched sport but I can’t keep up

with all these Joneses; so that’s your lot!
