Quiet Lovely

By John I. Blair

Sometimes in a deaf manís pain
I stop my failing ears,
Despairing at my auditory lack;

And my mind rebounds
While testing out the sound
Of no-sound. Bit by bit

Iíve come to understand
This too is a fair world,
One where I could live

And still have music
In my brain, not tears,
Even if I never heard again.
