Sounds — Soft and Aloud
POETRY FORMAT, 18 Apr 2022
Tell me my Dear
What sounds do you hear
If you are in a room
Do you hear a loud boom
If you are in the fresh air
Does the sound go everywhere
If you are in a bazaar
Does the sound go near and far
Tell me what makes the sound loud
So that we can hear it aloud
What is the sound, who is making it?
‘It is my old shoe, no money to change it’
Here take my new shoe and give me your old one
I will draw attention and become an important man
