Special Needs


It’ a soft morning

And from my list of random words

She chooses winter lake

Where swan swim slowly

So now I’m suggesting metaphors, Implying shape

Like question mark

Or the number two, suggestions

She ignores: sees instead

Them marks you get

On the singing sheet

Then draws :

A single note of clarity

From this child of William Blake.
