Wendy Young and Valensigns / 13 February 2014

I wanted to share a poem for Valentine's day with a bit of sign:


Cross my arms
Over my chest
To say
I love you
In the US

I prefer Sign UK
Touch my heart
In the English way

Point my middle finger
To my heart and point to you
To say amo-te

I give you my heart

Ich leibe dich
My crossed hands flutter from my heart
