Day 22 National Poetry Writing Month – Celebrating Earth Day

Published April 22, 2013 by Laura Crean Author

Mother Earth

A day to celebrate our Mother

A day to honour all she is

She gives us life, a home and love

And yet we daily risk

All that she has given us

All the fruit that she has born

And all that she can do is trust

That we will keep her safe to see another Dawn.

Can’t you see her heart is broken

As we daily subject her to pain?

She tried to tell us, she has spoken

Through her tears within the rain!

The climate changes its expression

All around her aching globe

As we cut and burn her body,

As we poke and prod and probe.

She is begging us to heal her

All she wants is to be loved

Will she live to see tomorrow?

Will our children be absolved?

Come celebrate this Earth Day

Make the choice to make a change 

Let today be the start of all tomorrows

and let Mother Earth be now avenged.
