Sounds — Soft and Aloud

POETRY FORMAT, 18 Apr 2022

Dr. Ravi P. Bhatia – TRANSCEND Media Service

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
