Earth Poem


Green wood shades the planet earth
How else would life please thee
Nature protects his own from outsiders
Life can't be as fair as we please

Lilies crown the river bank like a wreath
Peace is not far fetch, yet far reach
Roses line up the lakeside, a legion of beauty
War torn men, yet men are warlike gods

Destroy nature and life dies with it
Bank the peace for tomorrow chaos
Plant a tree, safe the earth from itself
Nurse a seed for posterity goals

The trees we save has need tomorrow
The air we breath depend on them today
