DEAF, BUT NOT DUMB

Deaf & dumb, they said of her when she was born,
But she was so very pretty, never sad nor forlorn,
She danced through her childhood to a silent tune,
She smiled at the sun & she dreamt with the moon.

This little girl smiled at the world & laughed at the sky,
Quiet, she never said a word & she never would cry,
Although she never could sing & would never ever talk,
But her legs being strong, through the world she´d walk.

She would speak with hands & the flutter of her lashes,
She knew the language of rain & the waterfall´s splashes,
She read the flight of birds & the pattern of their plumes,
And she knew poetry by touching the soft petals of blooms.

Her world was silent, according to all those around her,
But she knew the lingo of hooves, feathers, claws & fur,
Nature touched her soul & on her heartstrings strummed,
To the world she´d always be deaf, but never ever dumb.
