The Earth - Poem by Eva O. Scott

When I walk on Gods green earth
I contemplate its worth.
How lovingly God planned
And caused to become --- this lovely land.
All kinds of plants and shrubs delight these eyes
---'neath painted skies.
Man has polluted and drained,
---The earth that God ordained.
God will, in time, settle the score,
Until ruiners will ruin no more.
Fear God, and listen to His command
Is the obligation of man.
And then this earth will forever be
Man's blessed home --- eternally.
