Can You Hear the Voices - a mysterious poem

Can You Hear the Voices?
by
Greg Pincus

Can you hear the voices floating on the air?
They carry the wishes
Of birds, plants and fishes
And words of each animal prayer.

Can you hear the voices floating on the air?
They whisper and moan.
They howl and groan
And have secrets they’re longing to share.

Can you hear the voices floating on the air?
Nah.
Me neither.
But that doesn’t mean they’re not there.

I like the rhyme scheme especially, but your sense of humor added a silly moment too. Kids would love this when talking about observing in nature. Sometimes they are restless when we get a little serious when out for a nature walk. I can just see surprising them with your poem.

You've read Patrick Ness' Monsters of Men trilogy? There might actually be a place where those voices are heard!
