Green, Greener - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Our world is green.

Greener is the earth
when more trees are planted
Greener is the garden
when nurtured by loving hands
Greener is a tree with
leaves on its branches
Greener is the ground
when seeds for grasses are sown.

Greener is human life
when there's piece of land to toil
Greener is life of man and woman
when trees, grasses and garden
thrive best to serve mankind.

    Thank you so much for your very positive response, dear Joseph. I think poets in the world must also have creation and our responsibility for it as one of poetic themes. (Report) Reply

    As one who for many years was a tiller of the soil I can appreciate your love and concern
    for the hills of home. As we go about destroying this, we need morepeople of your nature.
    A worthy write
