Missy takes you through a reading of Shel Silverstein’s poem, “Deaf Donald.” This little known poem for children talks about Deaf Donald and Talkie Sue, and how a language barrier led them to lose each other. See the latest edition of Missy’s View to get a taste of poetry!

    Wonderful clip! Made me wonder why the author didn’t walk up and tell the guy she loved him? He didn’t get the “hug” sign? It is kind of a universal sign. I guess he thought she meant hugging him in goodbye?

    Thank you Missy for sharing this poem from this author Shel Silverstien. It brought back memories. When I was a very young gal graduated in High School 1982 , My Mom and Dad brought this book for me to enjoy reading. This is one of my favorite books to read. Have a super day! Susie

    THANKS MISSY WHAT A GOOD MESSAGE THAT YOU FOUND ANY AUTHOR ABOUT THEIR DEAFNESS’S CHARACTER VIEW AS CREATIVE THE RIGHT WORDS ACTUALLY THE AUTHOR’S THOUGHT WERE VERY POSTIVE AT ANYONE’S LIFE, OF COURSE, BOTH DEAF PERSON AND TALKER ARE VERY ALIKE BUT SOME TALKER CAN SIGNING ALSO DEAF CAN TALK PERFECT LIKE HEARING AS THERE IS NO IMPOSSIBLE EXCEPT WRITTING EACH OTHER AS NEEDS UNDERSTANDING OR LACKING .
