American Sign Language: "poetry"


 

UPDATE:  I notice that over time this sign has evolved.  It seems most people are now doing the sign starting with an "S" handshape (or a "closed O" handshape).

POETRY (slightly out of date version)  (Should now start with an "S" hand.)


Memory tip: The idea is to take the beauty in your heart and offer it up to the world. 

Animation: Poetry ("from the heart" version)

 


 

POETRY (Very old initialized version of "music")
You can initialize the above sign for MUSIC by using a "P" handshape on the dominant hand.  That changes the meaning to "poetry" instead of music. The initialized version is considered by many to be "signed English."
