Significance Of Listening
Poem By Alice Bina DeSantis
Listening as you go through life;
to loved ones, teachers, and others
with knowledge that will help and
prepare you for the road of life.
Listening is a pleasure when birds
sing, flutter their wings, a purring cat
and a barking dog warning you of danger
or someone special coming for a chat.
Listening is what our leaders say.
They must stop and listen to each
other in order to agree on the way
needed laws are made for this country.
Listening is a needed precious quality.
Just imagine if you no longer could hear
or listen, what a great catastrophe
and a very sad misfortune that would be.
