Flitting around under Teacher's gaze
Playing and fighting as children often do.
Swinging while lost in thought,
One girl is enjoying the moment
Suspended in the air.
Other children run past,
Saying, "Come with us! Play with us!"
But she cannot hear.
Some consider her deaf
(she never listens
or speaks, herself)
But she knows better.
She cannot hear them talk,
But she can hear them sing.
For all she ever hears is the music.
