Listening Out

by Ellie Miles © 2023

My life is ruled by buzzers,
By dings and tweets and chimes.
I even note my bird clock,
When chirpers sound the times.

My ears perk up at "Mommy,"
Or "Hey, I need some help!"
I'm tuned for coughs or sniffles,
Or unexpected yelp.

I tilt my head at whistles
Especially if it's three.
And if I hear a siren
A-praying, I will be.

My ears are set and ready
I'm always listening out --
Especially for the trumpet
Accompanied by a shout!

That call will end all others
The Sound above all sound.
I'll move so fast to meet Him,
My feet won't touch the ground!
