What's Not Music? - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

What's not music?
Everything is music.

The smart cock crowing
To awaken the morning.

The cuckoo bird cooing
For its mate wooing.

The honey bees buzzing
With their wings flying.

The young calf calling
Its cow for feeding.

The cute baby laughing
To its mother's coaxing.

The peasant folks singing
When they're harvesting.

The crystal stream gurgling
When its water is flowing.

The ocean waves rising
As they move jumping.

The rain drops drumming
O'er the roof, while falling.

The green leaves fluttering
To the strong wind blowing.

The temple bell ringing
To the pleasure of hearing.

The distant siren hooting
As a source of warning.

The factory machines working
A rhythmic sound making.

So, there's music in everything
To the lovers of listening.

Life is a waste
Sans music taste.
