Loudly the drums beat out in the street;

Loudly the tap shoes dance to the beat.

     Loudly the train roars down the track

     And when danger is near ducks loudly quack.


Loudly the mower sweeps over the lawn

Loudly but beautifully sing blackbirds at dawn.

     Loudly a radio blares out from a house

     But some things are quiet, especially a mouse.


Loudly folk talk when they party together,

Loudly sounds thunder when there’s stormy weather.

     Loudly the wind savagely blows,

     And loudly I say I’m afraid I must go.
