Earth


There was a time
Of which we cannot conceive
When plastic did not exist
When petroleum laid resting

There was a time
When oceans were a true blue
Colors we will never see covered a world
Without a square inch of concrete

And I wonder was it ever even possible
For us to thrive without destroying
Or were we destined to become parasites
That feed

Consuming this thing of beauty
A perfectly balanced ecosystem of grace
This rock
That we so arrogantly named
“Earth”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
