Can you hear that?

the spring’s first birdsong,

police sirens wailing loud and long.


the rhythmic croaking of a toad,

a truck thunders down the road.

Be quiet for a minute,

the rustle of grasses,

the shooting of masses.

Over there!

the whisper of wind through the trees,

A blaring radio shouts profanities.

Open your ears.

a beehive throbs with activity,

the screams of a horror movie.

It’s all around you,

You can hear nature’s joys,

If you turn down all that noise,


Just Listen.
