THE CONSECRATION OF BRAILLE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I was a barren tree before
Last Line: In the darkness of the blind.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Blindness; Night; Solitude; Trees; Visually Handicapped; Bedtime; Loneliness


I WAS a barren tree before,
I blew a quenched coal,
I could not, on their midnight shore,
The lonely blind console.

A moment, lend your hand, I bring
My sheaf for you to bind,
And you can teach my words to sing
In the darkness of the blind.
