I never knew

I never knew that I’d been blind;
Then I saw your eyes.
There was nothing
In the world,
And then his hand
Fell on her shoulder.
The neighbors said
He’d always been a strong swimmer
The day he fell into your eyes.

    Beautiful poem.

    “What a wonderful phenomenon it is, carefully considered, when the human eye, that jewel of organic structures, concentrates its moist brilliance on another human creature!” ~Thomas Mann (German writer)
