I Could not See

I Could not See

A Poem by lakki

This is a collage of some sentences that I read in 'The Story of my Life' by Helen Keller. These sentences caught my soul, and heart, so I thought of bringing them together under one poem.

I could not see the great cotton fields, 
The hills and woods, and the crowds of laughing girls
I could not see the beautiful Tennessee River
I could not see, for seeing is not an eye
But a word-painting of my own
