The Diving Bell And The Butterfly




The Diving-Bell and the Butterfly.
A book which makes some cry,
A book so beautiful,
As it is of spirit full,
Written by an eyelid,
Which did for freedom bid,
Saying ‘Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage.’
This book will with your heart engage,
And you to great places take.
By Jean-Dominique Bauby it was written,
And you will be by courage smitten.

*****

A very moving book.
