Mother Earth


Mother Earth, give me your comfort from the birth
let my heart, in this world, be something worth
I want to feel the loving waves in my blood
from murmuring rill to roaring flood
Mother Earth, give me the power from the roots of your plants
Resistance, persistence and a fair chance
I want to feel my soul, in peace and quiet winter
See inside the hope and the faiths imprinter
Mother Earth, give me the strength to consider my prints
Let my senses experience the richness of spring
I want to feel the wind of lust against my cheek
When passion makes me wild, blind and weak
Mother Earth, give me much love and shelter like mothers do
Encourage me to live happily and to trust my heart below
But don't forget mother Earth, to everyone show
A Mother Is Always A Mother Wherever She Goes

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
