Truly Noble Beasts / Verdaderamente Nobles Bestias



Late at night
Deep in the zoo
You will catch a wondrous sight
For whether they walked or swim or flew
The animals make music tonight

Each one brings an instrument
They have now so grown to love
Brass, woodwinds and percussion
Or voices like the dove

The rhino refuses to play a horn
For its too on the nose
Zebra hooves meet trash cans
A grooving rhythm now is born

Flamingo on the saxophone
A turtle drums his shell
A walrus bark
An aardvark hark
Hyenas rhythmic laughter
The choir swells
With cries that dwell
In Earth's deep ever after

The symphony arises full
A sound so sweet and deep
Tonight they play as loud as they may
Every species, whether feathers, fur or wool
Except for man
Who formed a plan
To put themselves to sleep
They left the stage
In mortal rage
To the truly noble beasts




Por la noche
En el zoológico
Usted cogerá una vista maravillosa
Para que caminaron o nadan o voló
Los animales hacen música esta noche

Cada uno trae un instrumento
Hasta ahora han crecido para amar
Latón, instrumentos de viento y percusión
O voces como la paloma

El rinoceronte se niega a jugar un cuerno
Para su demasiado en la nariz
Pezuñas cebra cumplir con botes de basura
Ahora nace un ritmo ranurado

Flamenco en el saxofón
Una tortuga tambores su caparazón
Una corteza de morsa
Un oso hormiguero hark
Risa rítmica hienas
El coro se hincha
Con gritos que habitan
En tierra profunda perdices

La Sinfonía se presenta completo
Un sonido tan dulce y profundo
Esta noche juegan tan fuertes como pueden
Todas las especies, plumas, pieles o lana
Excepto para el hombre
¿Quién formó un plan
Ponerse a dormir
Dejaron el escenario
En rabia mortal
A las bestias nobles

Buenos dias Rick,
Muchos de mis recuerdos estan conectados con los zoologicos. Momentos de felicidad y alegria.
Siempre he pensado che los animales en muchos casos son mas nobles de los seres humanos.
Un beso

Rick, you wrote this? No way! This sounds just like a poem taken from a book called the "Truly Noble Beasts". I'm sure I've seen it around somewhere. And the author. I guess the author stole your works and went by other name. I love this poem! I love this to bits. It is a beautiful and magical poem.

This is beautifully imaginative and fun. I don't get the ending though. What do you mean?
