Close an Eye, What do You See? Close an Ear, What do You Hear?

My attempt at poetry:

A child looking through a telescope

closes an eye to focus better
the image now clear
the child stands back
one eye still closed
looks ahead
then blinks and closes the other eye
magic, everything has shifted over
the child discovers a new game
open one eye, shut the other
then switch over
what was once here
is now there!

A loud banging noise
the child closes his ears
to block out the sound
waits a few
then opens one ear
checks, has the noise gone away he asks
but wait
now there is a louder noise
coming from him
his voice is now louder
the child opens both ears
talks, sounds regular
closes an ear, then hears louder!
