“What is like to be deaf.”? Asked a voice.
“It’s like nothing else on Earth” Signed a voice.
“Everything and everyone is forever quietened.
Little Mix, Pavarotti, the friend; the stranger; you ~
The traffic; the people; the sea; the new-born babies
The piano; the horse, the lamb, the orchestral strings.
That inconsiderate cyclist behind you on the footpath !
All these to us are silent; and silence is non-golden.”
