    Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Though born with the ability to see and hear, at 19 months-old she contracted an acute illness that left her both deaf and blind. Eventually, 20-year-old Anne Sullivan, herself visually impaired, became Keller's speech instructor. It was the beginning of a 49-year-long relationship during which Sullivan evolved into Keller's governess and eventually her companion.

    Helen Keller is known for being without sight and without hearing. Yet this endearing poem by this wonderful woman gives no hint as to her disabilities. Perhaps she saw more than those gifted with sight - heard more than those with the most acute hearing. A poem that is as much history and creative expression - as much patriotic as religious. The listener is left to define the meaning of the old stone wall.
