Earth's Day! - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Today we celebrate Earth's Day
With plenty of joy and great concerns
For this great creation
By the Mighty One above
Is about to go back to dust,
If we don't take precautions
To save it for generations to come!

At the beginning,
Everything was dark and cold
But by divine intervention,
The light, for the first time
Came out to be enjoyed
By all human forms
Throughout the infinity of time!

The precious fresh water,
The key to our own survival
And now heavily contaminated,
Due our own negligence,
Started to separate from the land,
The very land where today
You plant the beautiful flowers
Of your colorful garden!

The Mountains as natural towers
Gave meanings to High and Low
While the Sun and Moon
Brought life and inspirations
To human kind down below...

Food was provided
By the mighty One above,
Graciously giving us fruits,
Vegetables and other
Eating types of food
That are now missing
In the weak and empty
Stomachs of our children
Throughout the World!

The air, key of life,
Filled the lungs
Of our first ancestors.
The very air we breathe
And now heavily polluted
By a powerful few
Whose have no concerns
For our future generations
But their own,
Fortune and greed!

Now, struggling to survive,
We clearly witness the events:
Wars, Starvation and deceases
Deriving from natural disasters
Enhanced by our disregard
For other human beings!
The message is quite clear,
We need a divine intervention
To save our Earth!

Earth's Day today
We 'joyfully' celebrate
When we should do it
Every single day!
Faithfully spreading the message
Of Love and Peace for always!

    Excellent tribute to Mother Earth [ME]

    Literally we're robbing ME [read raping excuse me for the word] by greed for lucre

    Even summit of Mt. Everest is polluted

    US burps out maximum pollutants in regard to per capita ratio as proved in many summits on environmental meetings

    We've to be ready to face the revenge of ME what has already started cropping up [global worming, green house effect high concentration of mercury in fishes, suspended particles in air]

    You've chosen the write theme to stir our psyche like a 'statutory poetry'..thanks for sharing..regards ~ niv

    Earth's day, Romeo Della Valle! we celebrate like our mom's birthday...the whole year we tease her, and on a single day, try to appease her.this poem not only invokes the divine intervention but also serves as an eye-opener

    Earth's Day today
    We 'joyfully' celebrate
    When we should do it
    Every single day!

    we have got habitual of this one day celebration, , , , just like a week of peace! ! ! don't we need peace always? just like feb.14! ! ! doesn't anybody like to have love in all the rest of the days?
    the discrepancy in our words n deeds is so obvious n so painful that we are not reciprocal towards the all-bounteous mother-earth...Throughout the infinity of time! ? ? ? ...your poem is thought-provoking! ! !

    A nicely sculpted poem about the earth n how we homo sapiens sapiens have distorted the mother earth (Report) Reply

    Love this. We are over-looking the greatest gift beyond life we were given, Earth. This planet was made perfectly for us with everything we would ever need yet it is abused and undervalued. Nice poem (Report) Reply
