Watching television with no sound,
Closed captions, though, are on.
Thoughts of pre-“talkies” abound.
Though, mostly, they’re long gone.

And before either of those
There were writings
In rhyme or in prose and
Some picture book sightings.

Before the written word
Was available here,
All History had to be heard.
From those with memory clear.

Future folk, if still around,
May know it in yet a new way.
Science tricks abound,
Just how, right now, I cannot say.
