God's Earth - Poem by Melvina Germain

Spare me the rhetoric of which you speak,
of high hopes, progress, and barren streets.
Take your buildings, your towers, your stores.
Place them where the sun shines no more.

Walk away from the lush green forest that grows.
Give life a chance, so history knows,
we live on an earth of life and love.
We are grateful to the good Lord above.

Stand up, move away from complacency.
Take your place among a green society.
Now is our chance to help enhance,
God's earth to the best of our ability.
