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.

    I wanted the gold, and I sought it;

    Was it famine or scurvy—I fought it;
    I hurled my youth into a grave.

  6. Music

    Sweet melody amidst the moving spheres
    Breaks forth, a solemn and entrancing sound,

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

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither you nor I.
