ASL 1 & 2 Poetry
• Invictus by William Ernest Henley
• https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9GbDuYoSkg
ASL Gloss:

I CONTROL MY FUTURE

English meaning:
This poem was written while Henley was in the hospital being treated for
tuberculosis of the bone. He had the disease since he was young and his foot
had been amputated right before he wrote the poem. It’s about courage in the
face of death and holding on to one’s dignity despite the trials of life.

This is just a fun story, an exaggerated lie. Or perhaps the poem is saying, there will always be
problem in life or maybe-don’t lie to mermaids.


This is Just to Say by William Carlos Williams

• https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HQhVikelC4
ASL Gloss:
POINT I FINISH EAT-UP PLUM (nod head)
POINT LEFT THERE-IX COLD FREEZE OPEN-UP
GRAB POINT-IX (nod head)
I KNOW-THAT YOU MAYBE TRUE
SAVE FOR EAT-MORNING SORRY
FORGIVE-ME WOW DELICIOUS
SWEET COLD (shrug shoulders)
English meaning:

This is a satire poem about a man eating a plum that was someone else's and
then apologizing for it. Even though the subject is so simple and the poem is
short, this poem still has poetic devices and meaning. A symbol used in this
poem are the plums: "I have eaten/the plums/that were in/the icebox.” Even
though the word "plums" is only used once in the poem, every line after refers
to them. So the plums symbolize premature death of an object or person.
Within the few lines of this poem, Williams still manages to set the setting
through the poem by two words: plums and ice box. She sets the setting in a
kitchen and perhaps the poem is a note that the narrator left for the person
who was saving the plums for breakfast?
• Hope is the Thing with Feathers by Emily Dickinson
• https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-98kOz7h_3g
ASL Gloss:
HOPE FLY FLUTTER SOUL SIT SING HEART
INSPIRE WORDS NEED NONE CONTINUE BREATH SING INSPIRE
WIND PATIENT INSPIRE PRECIOUS (know-that) I IMAGINE LIGHTNING
STORM TORNADO LIGHTNING x3 FOR SMALL BIRD LITTLE INSPIRE-INSPIRE
CL:G (people) MANY SCATTERED INSPIRE SINCE LAND THERE COLD
TOUCH-HEART INSPIRE SEA THERE AREA DON’T-KNOW INSPIRE SINCE
DOESN’T MATTER PATIENT x3 SMALL FLAP-AWAY TAP SHOULDER MUST
GIVE (small) EXCHANGE NONE
English meaning:
In this poem, Dickinson is creating a metaphor of hope through a bird.
The hope that is within the speaker is much like a bird that continues to fly
inside her. While we may all experience some dark times, Hope can offer some
encouragement.

English meaning:
This poem shares the struggles of being Deaf and connecting to the hearing.
Being Deaf is an identity not a disability. Hearing need to seek to understand
the Deaf and share in their beautiful language and all it has to offer.
