I am very concerned about the environment and I will be adding poetry and writings to this page to reflect that concern. For the time being I will send you to a twin page in my family scrapbook which has a really inspirational video, a bit about my children’s book Golly-Gobble and an environmental poem.
Let’s have 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
and will our children be absolved?
Come celebrate this Earth Day
and make the choice to make a change,
let this day be the start of all tomorrows
and let Mother Earth be now avenged!
