For Helen Keller Poem by Richard Wlodarski

For Helen Keller

Rating: 5.0

Although she was blind
She saw with her heart
Very much better
Than most with their eyes

Although she was deaf
Listening to heart
Public speaker strength
Inspired the world

Both her and her teacher Anne Sullivan were true inspirations for generations to come. All of us should learn through their example! Very happy with your response, Poet Menon.

Hen Keller was indeed special, and so was her teacher. How in the world did Anne Sullivan manage to teach someone who was both deaf and blind? Amazing!

You're absolutely right, Kim! And as I was writing this poem, I was formulating one for Anne Sullivan. Both women exemplified the greatness of the human spirit!
