Poems for Earth Day
The earth 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 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;
I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.
Was it famine or scurvy—I fought it;
I hurled my youth into a grave.Featured Shared Story

Outside my bedroom window
Stands an old majestic tree.
She's been standing there for decades,
Just as proud as she can be.Featured Shared Story
I'm reminded of a similar experience. When I was a young boy there was a pear tree on the edge of a field a couple hundred yards or so behind the house I was born and raised in. I would go to...
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.Featured Shared Story
This poem is cute and happy. I love it! I am a kid too and I have written a poem called Season's End.
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?Featured Shared Story
This poem made me feel like I can once more cry for our poor Earth. Why do we have to do what we do? And to our surprise, tigers, wolves, mountain lions, and many other predators are blamed...
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.
Lives are crying because it's not clean.
Earth is dying because it's not green...
Earth is our dear Mother; don't pollute it.Featured Shared Story

Mankind! Long before your birth,
alluring was the beauty of Mother Earth.
She bore living things of all kinds...plants and insects, animals and birds.

17. The Tree
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.
I know a place where the tall cotton grass blooms and blows,
where the fireweed blazes and the nodding cattail grows
a haven overgrown with ruddy cranberry and spongy moss
emitting their tart scent the playful breeze does toss.
