    Opinion-based, but 'my' is less impersonal. – Edwin Ashworth Apr 18 '18 at 20:44
  • Her name is unusual and she may not like having it splashed around. You might want to use another name....just saying.... – Lambie Apr 18 '18 at 20:49
  • Generally it's considered more polite to capitalize a person's name. – Hot Licks Apr 18 '18 at 20:52
  • When you have finished writing your poem I suggest you run a spelling check. – David Apr 18 '18 at 20:54

This is tough. In a poem you can get away with anything if you are clever enough. Here is an example of of a (presumably beautiful) girl being compared to (good heavens) a time interval:

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

So you have an opportunity to stretch for art. Just go with your gut, and if you fall then fall from a great height.

  • @Edwin & Co, you have completely failed to see what the questioner was really after. – Aethelbald Apr 19 '18 at 13:48
