Mother Earth


I am here to commemorate and honour the life of Mother Earth
Mother earth was everything to me
She had her virtues
That was nothing new
She was very special and unique
There was absolutely nothing in her league

Unfortunately I was not present at her birth
And deplorably I have to speak about her death

Her birth they say was an amazing wonder
Which no man alone could bring asunder
She was created from the smallest element in the universe
And yet became the greatest miracle of it
So many blessings she has showered on the human race

From endless nights to glorious days
Showered randomly by rainbow colours
Gentle winds and pouring rains
The mighty oceans and the gentle blazing sun

These were the gifts Mother Earth offered
The seas, land, air, sun, rain and thunder

She matured daily with strenght, wisdom and love
To give so much to us
Once a paradise
Ripe with variety of fruits
Blessed with many mixed cultures
Inhabited by numerous families
Rich in food and wealthy in nature

Now a barren land
Completely void
The air polluted by fumes
Sickness and poverty the earth consumes

I content myself with the beautiful memories of you
Mother Earth!
I thank you for your gifts
I await the rebirth of you
Perhaps now that we know what is true
We humans may take better care of you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

Far south the lift,
