‘The Sound Collector at the Zoo’ by Conan

Lion Dellboyy Art via Compfight

A stranger called this morning

Dressed all in black and grey,

Put every sound into a bag

And carried them away.


The roaring of the lion,

The purring of the tiger,

The growling of the leopard,

The swishing of the cheetah as he sprints.


A stranger called this morning.

He didn’t leave his name,

Left us only silence,

Life will never be the same.


Work done with Ms. Kelly.

Inspired by the poem:

‘The Sound Collector’ by Roger McGough
