Sonnet 1

Teacher's note:  Emma wrote this poem as a school project.

"Sonnet 1" written by Emma Studer
The rain of love is flowing.
Wind of hope blows through the branches of the tree of life.
I have wings to fly over the mountain and beyond the shore.

Poem: "I Am Me"

"I Am Me" by Emma Studer

Me mentor is music.
I am the sound you hear in the morning when you first wake up
and you know you are still alive.
I am the sound you hear when I am all alone in  me heart
and hear you whisper.
Can I say I hear you.
I am the sound you hear when I am all alone and I'm afraid me won't be met in time.
I am the sound you hear when you ask for me.
I am me.

Teenager Listening

I am glad I listened.  I didn't want to because I was being a bratty teenager and was mad that I had to listen.  but, I confess that I am a better person after.  Before, can I say, I listen, the bees were buzzing at over 1,000,000,000.  When I stopped one hour later, me beehive was at, can I say, 1,000.  A big deal was I went to bed all on me own, AS ME!

Teacher's note: Emma was very proud for me to know that she had gone to bed all on her own and had fallen asleep, in her words, "as me."

Feeling Better

January 24, 2012
I am happy to say that I am free of ear cold deafness.  I listened to me music for over one hour and I am glad.  I am feeling like a new woman!  Me ears are really open and me brain is growing.  I am hearing sounds like never before.  For example, I heard a noise that can I say was unusual to me.  It was high pitch and not ringing but not mean to me either.  It was a black bird that previously I would run away from.  I was shocked.  Can you imagine how I have run into the car or into my mommy after each time I before saw this bird at Wal-Mart?  Can I say now I may not have to.
Teacher's note:  Emma is also making great progress with reading out loud (rather than silently) because her "ears are feeling better."

Listening With a Cold

January 23
Can I say I have not listened to my music therapy because me ears have been deaf from a cold and therefore I have not been able to hear.  Mom made me yesterday even though I was very uncooperative.  I am able to say with certainty that it is useful to listen if I can hear but not if can I say I can't.  Yesterday I was able to hear some and I am happy to report this to you.  Can I say since I started this therapy me ears are less deaf and I am able to hear things I never did.

Holiday Travel

December 21
On the airplane, me ears were an 8 gazillion which is 8 trillion bees.  I must say after listening for one hour it released the bees and me ears felt more like a normal me as a bee hive of 100 or a million or so.  On the shuttle bus me ears exploded to more than a 800000 trillion bees and I wanted to "murder" people on the b us, me parents included.  NOT in reality but in bee world.  AFter over one hour of listening I became normal me again and was not a mean bee killer.
December 22
Can I say I was very anxious and hungry.  I was not really sure where I was but when I remembered the bees exploded to 800,000 million; less than the plane and shuttle but bus more than a normal day.  After I listened for one hour I believe it was more like a normal day for me the 1,000 bees or so.
