A window standing without a wall
To see through
To see truth
To see all
Cherished Witness be certain without the fault

A melody playing without an instrument
To hear songbird
To hear heartache
To hear lament
Precious Child be understanding without the argument

A voice ringing without a tongue
To speak loud
To speak mind
To speak unsung
Beloved Soul be right without the wrong

See no evil
Hear no evil
Speak no evil
Not one of my best poems, I don't think. But I felt inspired to write it. So here it is.
See No Evil. Hear No Evil. Speak No Evil.

Original Skeletons
Original texture

And that's one of my fav lines too.
Though my absolute favorite is actually "To speak unsung"
Somewhat unlike how it sounds, unsung really means to not be celebrated or praised, which I was just really happy when I found the word that fit the rhyme and it worked so perfectly! :D :D :D

Yeah! I didn't realize it either. I knew it didn't simply mean that something hadn't been sung, but I didn't know that it had such a meaningful definition. :D

There is also a little-known fourth, Do no evil, who is usually portrayed covering his groin or stomach.

Haha, the "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" reminds me of a manga I read. x3 Sex Pistols, lmao.

Nice poem though. ^^

I don't know anything important about poetry, but I can tell that I really like this poem. It's... simple, short, and has some sort of balance, I think. You know, because of the no see, no hear, no speak concept developed through the poem. I ended up here because of the skeletons image, which is great, but your poem's way better.

Great concept to work from, and the structure is consistent so it doesn't feel out of place. It more or else runs off the tongue. :)
