Earth Poems

Poems for Earth Day

The earth is the planet given to us by God to live on. Despite what scientists might have us believe, it is the only planet in our solar system that humanity can comfortably inhabit. The earth is a paradise for the creatures that live on it. Every species on earth has its place in the circle of life. Human beings need food, clothing, shelter to survive. All of these are provided in ample supply on God's green earth. It is an unfortunate fact the we have not taken good care of the land that has been placed in our guardianship. Hopefully, it is not too late.

  1. The Spell Of The Yukon

    I wanted the gold, and I sought it;
    I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.
    Was it famine or scurvy—I fought it;
    I hurled my youth into a grave.

    A Lovely Old Tree Outside My Window

    Outside my bedroom window
    Stands an old majestic tree.

    Just as proud as she can be.

  4. Music

    Sweet melody amidst the moving spheres
    Breaks forth, a solemn and entrancing sound,
    A harmony whereof the earth's green hills
    Give but the faintest echo; yet is there

  6. Seasons

    • By Michaela
    • Published: August 2008
    Poem About Changing Seasons

    Winter is cold, with gusts of tumbling snow,
    When rain falls down and nothing ever grows.
    For children, it's the snow that they desire
    And cups of cocoa in front of the fire.

    Analysis of Form and Technique

    I can't sleep tonight, I can still hear her name.
    She came with warning but could not be tamed.
    We packed our things and stored them tight,
    And headed for shelter anticipating this night.

    Our Planet Without Life

    Analysis of Form and Technique

    Can earth be Earth when all its trees are gone,
    And sudsy waters have become unfit,
    And poisoned life no longer greets the dawn
    With raucous sounds that death has caused to quit?

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither you nor I.
    You see now, it's invisible
    to the naked eye.

    This is an absolutely beautiful poem that made me think of God; how God proves that he is there and who he is. It made me think of how he is always there, invisible to the naked eye for now...

    Metaphor For The Cycle Of Life

    Once a tree spoke to me in words of color and grace.
    It said to exist it had to persist in its purpose to have its place.
    In hues of green it said it had seen many a year and season
    With interesting features like other creatures, which added branches of reason.
