One of the five senses, tell me what you hear Picking up of sounds, directly from the ear A great deal of listening, noises all around Approaching from a distance, I can hear a sound

I can hear a siren, I hear a bouncing ball I hear a loud football crash against the wall I hear the sound of paper, torn so carefully I hear a crunching apple bitten gracefully

Detecting sound waves, in the open air They cannot be seen, but they are still there Patterns of the sound waves, dogs are howling High upon the tree branch, I hear a bird sing

A message through my ears, sent towards my brain I know what I am hearing, the splattering of rain Different types of animals, distinct shaped ears Some can hear clearer when a noise appears

Even with my eyes closed, I can hear a squeak I can hear the footsteps, yet without a peek Looking inside you will find the eardrum Noise creates vibration, louder than a hum

A louder sound brings a larger vibration Good listening deemed for a quiet narration Sounds high and low, near or far There goes the sound of a very fast car
