Do you attend upon that familiar din
Of loudly resonant radio talk
The vexatious telephone buzz
The impetuous elevator ding

Often times, you will also hear
An ear- piercing siren scream,
The flock clamor of sparrow chirps
The deep- throated pigeon gurgles

Also notably, to be heard,
The sibilant hiss of bus air brakes
The children’s’ excited shouts at play
The distant, deep bark of dogs.

It’s akin to sighting thru glass panes
And viewing the sites, just like,
Peering from the smooth, inside edge
Of a white curtained window’s wooden sill.
