Elephants In Left And Rats In Right - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Sound having frequency lower than twenty hertz
This is called as infrasonic that elephant produces,
One elephant communicates to another by this,
Elephants swing and sing is infrasonic sound.

Far, far miles this sound goes and elephants hear,
Human beings cannot hear this sound even near,
Men do not perceive and elephants perceive,
Many things happen here wonderful really.

Rats hear sound above twenty thousand hertz,
Such ultrasonic frequency is easily heard by them.
In left elephants do magic and in right rats do,
In middle human beings do not hear such sound.


This wonders many of us and we move to think,
In-between left and right we swing in memories here,
Nature does magic, animals do perceive mystery,
Universal truth never fades, cosmic laws vibrate sure.

    So true! The animals are keenly perceptive of nature's rhythm.

    I was intrigued by the title of your poem and was fascinated on learning about the vast frequency differences between these two animals. I guess our perception is just right being in the middle. I wonder how disturbed or enhanced we would be if we had the whole range available to us. (Report)Reply
