A New Earth With A Pink Sun - Poem by Roger Harkness

It's a happy day
It's a warm soft rain
Sprinkling my body
Washing off my pain

Now stand
Rise to a pink sun
Command the flowers to bloom
Direct the birds in song

One more chance
A new earth
You will not hurt

Kiss the ground
Take nothing down
Milk and honey
Fruits and berries
Will be your food

Teach your sons
Teach your daughters
About the new earth
And pink sun

Teach them
How their forefathers
Didn't care
About the other one

In a great anger
The old earth got sick
And threw-up
Ice water washed it clean
A death of life
Chilled us to the bone
To be awakened here
All alone
A law giver charged us
To take care of
This one

A new earth
With a pink sun
