The Earth's Call For Responsible Stewards - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

It is calling for compassion
It is calling for responsible hands
It is calling for stewards,
stewards to see and listen,
stewards to learn and act,
stewards to protect and love.

The earth is crying,
crying over destruction
in her hills and mountains,
fields, valleys and air,
seas, lakes and rivers,
plants, animals and humans.

The earth is calling
men, women, youth and
children to do their share
as stewards: responsible stewards
of what has been entrusted
from the beginning of time.

    earth cries gleaning tears within
    hues of stance desiccates being heaved in, very humanistic and exactly is need of hours (Report) Reply
