Two beautiful & expressive poems in sign language.

The first is in British sign language
& comes from the deaf arts forum in Edinburgh,
Scotland. There are subtitles for the hearing.

The second is in American Sign Language & is written &
performed by Ellie, a sixth grader at the Metro deaf school in St Paul.

No translation for this one, so non signers should bear
the title in mind & enjoy the volcanic performance.
