Elizabeth Fontaine Grieco

(08/14/1957 / Montreal, Quebec, Canada)



I fear your judgement Oh Lord!
When I see what has taken place
Upon this planet, the destruction of life,
Of clean water and our clean air,
How do we suppose life is going to fair?
Can we ever return to the old ways?
When horse and buggy was our stay,
And our air was cleaner without
The burning of fossil fuels.
Do we not see our human needs
Far outweigh our evil deeds?

But life's hypocrisy is such,
When we ask to be in touch
With reality, the way God wanted;
We fair far better without our lusts
And our yearning for more lessens,
As we try to accept the way of
Our Ancestor's, the native American Indians,
Who lived and accepted simplier way of life by
Respecting Mother Earth's life offerings!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
