My poem is about Helen Keller. So much has been written about her, I wanted to find something that most people may not know. I did some research and learned there was quite a lot I didn't know about her. One fact that especially struck me was that she "listened" to the radio. A deaf woman listening to the radio? How could that be? I knew this would be the topic of my poem.
I hope "Listening" will inspire children to learn more about Helen Keller.
A big thank you to Tabatha for hosting Poetry Friday on her blog The Opposite of Indifference.
