A general search at Poetry Foundation for the term "Lucy," led me to a poem by Ben Jonson called, "To Lucy, Countess of Bedford, with John Donne's Satires" Its opening and closing lines perfectly fit Lucille Ball with her red hair and comedic genius:
Lucy, you brightness of our sphere, who are
Life of the Muses' day, their morning star!
I also found a number of poems written by a poet named Lucy Eddy (1863-1931). Several of which are found in the February 1918 edition of Poetry: A Magazine of Verse. Included is this:
"In the sand a foot-fall/Sings..." Led me to wonder if the song of a desert's singing sands is the same as the song of Manchester-by-the-Sea Massachusetts' Singing Beach. And that in turn led me to this short video for those who have never been to the Singing Beach.
Not a straight path to a blog post, but I hope you see the connections. Half the fun in getting there is in the trip itself!
