What a sound track, Caren. Those hills in the sound of Music have nothing on you! ~ MGM, gw

And I drowned that wasp after dousing him with gallons of wasp spray which did not kill it.

Except for a few noisy crows and songbirds rehearsing full throated, I like my mornings quiet – it's when I do a good deal of my writing, otherwise, though rare, it's late at night. All those rhetorical sounds in your poem would drive me crazy. / Maurice

There is sound everywhere here. I know because I have dog ears.

(chuckle) I call this my morning symphony, Caren. I wear hearing aids, so after I put them in, it becomes a cacaphony!

I imagine it is immediately LOUD when you do.
