Pure echo-locating in human language. A description of how sound moves and echoes in the waters from a
whale's perspective. These sounds are like music to both Whale and Human ears. A mystery is revealed, and O what beauty.
Music rings through the valleys,
Ricocheting sound. Frequencies unite
And part, zigzagging around.
Quicker tone returns allow
Close measure of a promontory.
Whole tones reveal what depths
As Whales pass in the windrift.
