Invisible matters of the mind turned real into the written word.
|Earth Day, 18 line poem for the 'Writing 4 Kids Contest
Did you know we come from two mothers?
Or haven’t you heard the word?
We all have the same mom,
Her name is Mother Earth.
To every one of us, she is the one
Who has given us our birth.
We are made from what she gives us,
Each meal where we find its worth.
The plants that grow and feed us,
Each of us come from the same dirt.
All that Mother Earth asks
Is that we help her instead of hurt.
Pick up before we toss away
And go about our play.
Such a little thing is all she asks
For us to bring to each day.
Please do, if not for me, for you,
It is the best way we’ll be here to stay.
