Limerick- Deaf And Dumb - Poem by Valsa George

Between the lovers, fell a silence deep
Which not even a wind could sweep
One was totally deaf
The other lately dumb
What they together did was laugh and weep

    In love there are so many alternates of talking, keeping silence still talking, is just one of the magics of love. (Report)Reply

    Sometimes words are more destructive in a relation than silence. So deaf and dumb lovers make a happy couple. Well penned. Very interesting.10 (Report)Reply

    All disturbances of the world won't affect them. Nothing else mattered for them. Weep rhymes but they didn't have to. (Report)Reply

    Dear poet,

    One was totally deaf
    The other lately dumb
    What they together did was laugh and weep

    these lines remembers me the tamil film song writer & poet kannadasan's line

    who will know the dumb's dream?

    the first line of the song is

    o! moon don't come closer
    I am not like as you think


    What they together did was laugh and weep

    heart touching lines
