Lily M

The World only dark shadows in her sightless eyes
And colours are a thing that she can only visualize
But she can tell the bird it is just by the chirp or song
Her ears her link to her environment and have never proved her wrong.

Lily doesn't need your pity she feels her sightlessness to her is not a drawback
And in confidence and optimism she surely does not lack
Her three years old brown labrador Meg for her eyes is a substitute is with her where ever she goes
A greater friend to her than any Human being and their bond of friendship grows.

Her sightlessness to her she will tell you does not impair her in any way
And she lives her life as others do in their lives of every day
A fluent reader in braille and short stories and essays she does write
As gifted as most people are blessed with the gift of sight.

To recognize me by the sound of my voice Lily does never fail
And her dog Meg to greet me always wags her tail
And often on Sunday mornings in the park off the by street
Out walking in the sunshine them I happen to meet.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
