Sounds I love to hear…

Posted: July 8, 2011 in hear, sounds

Today I was thinking of the sounds I love to hear.
  • Birds singing in the morning – seems like they are so happy to be up early
  • A train approaching from the distance – the sound of the train’s warning whistle getting louder as the closer it gets
  • Children laughing and playing outside – just enjoyment to my ears
  • Babies giggling make me giggle, too.
  • The ocean at night – you can hear the power of the waves yet it calms you to sleep
  • “Gentlemen, start your engines!” – get ready!
  • A dog barking in the distance – protecting its family
  • The rustling of leaves on a tree moving to a summer breeze
  • The ice cream truck music – Ice cream! Ice cream!
  • A frog’s mating call on a hot summer night –
  • The bark of a puppy when playing – ready for the next move
  • The sound of a marching band in a parade – wave a flag
  • Echo of a cannon shot in the hills – how far can it be heard?
  • The splash of a child jumping into a pool – hey Grandma, look!
  • The squeaking of a swing when a child swings
  • The startup of a lawnmower in the Spring
  • Snow landing on the bushes and the ground – you have to be real quiet to hear it
  • Happy Birthday!
  • Congratulations!
