If a tree falls in a forest, and no person had heard it, does it make a sound?
If a tree falls in a forest and no one heard it, would the fallen tree mind?
Would the nesting bird, seeing her offspring prematurely take flight?
Would the shrubbery beneath, burdened by the trunk’s weight?
Would the tree’s beetles, quickening away in a frenzy?
Would the alarmed herd of deer grazing nearby?
Or the brook, its serenity now disturbed?
And the beaver, its lodge upset?
And the sky above?
Would the sun?
