Black and White


They see the world in black and white
Together they travel near
A cycle they must take ahead
For alone they truly fear.

In black and white they look below
Upon the solid ground
For fear of noise not quite the same
They speak without a sound.

In sync their footsteps follow
A beat of two by two
Each step aligned not out of place
Each step not freshly new.

Yet here I see the world in color
And with nobody by my side
I travel alone upon my course
Walking tall with pride.

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
