The Greatest Of All

So little about her i can claim to know
Yet my wonder of her only does seem to grow
I first grew to love her sixty years ago
And i love her today though time has become my foe
Mother Earth or Mother Nature she is known by either name
The one who will outlive the mortals who have known of Earthly Fame
Compared to her achievements the greatest human achievements seem small
She remains as she was as the greatest of all
The one who has in her the magical power
Of creating from a tiny seed a beautiful flower
The one who creates life out of death and decay
Her marvelous creations we see every day
Present in the World from shore to shore
She has lived forever and will live forever more.
