A poem we can all learn from…

Written by owner Clay Carpenter’s daughter Alex, age 13 from Wilink Middle School in Webster.  I am truly amazed by her her profound intelligence at such an early age.  We can all learn from young Alex.  🙂

 

The Deaf’s Song
I create the deaf’s song,
I give them music, what they long.
This song is different from what you think.
It is a drawing sketched in ink.

Across the page my pencil runs.
It is a drawing of the rising sun.
As you see the wave hit the beach,
It is a love for art you cannot teach.

I create the deaf’s song,
I give them music, what they long.
This song is different from what you think.
It is a drawing sketched in ink.

A drawing of my cousin I bring to life.
She smiles like there is no strife.
Her back is as straight as a line.
She is only four but I make her look nine.

I create the deaf’s song,
I give them music, what they long.
This song is different from what you think.
It is a drawing sketched in ink.

A drawing of my dog is a piece of art,
Even though he does not look smart.
At least that’s proper because it is true,
He’s ludicrous, what else is new?

The songs I create are different from what you think,
They are drawings sketched in ink.
I give the deaf music, what they long,
For I create the deaf’s song.
