Treasure Island

What Do You See What Do You Hear?

What do you see,
My friends, my friends?
What do you see,
In Mother Earth?

Does the sea, still run blue,
In our days of pure glory?
Are the trees, still growing,
In the deep green forests?

What do you hear,
My friends, my friends?
What do you hear,
In Mother Earth?

Do the birds still sing their songs of joy?
Do the rivers still run,
Over the rocks within their path
Making such a beautiful noise?

Do the waterfalls still fall
Making the sound of peace?
Does the wind still whistle
Through the trees?

Do you hear, do you hear
The voice of God
Within the wind
That blows our way?

Do you hear, do you hear
My friends, my friends
Do you see, do you see
My friends, my friends
All the things in Mother Earth?

Critics welcome.

    This is a real poem. It has the musical quality
    that I listen for when I read. You are to be congratulated
    young lady. Your style is rather smoothe naturaly in this
    one. I'll read another.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
