April 23

IMG_2039The Earth continues to give

And we take away…

 

Have you thanked the trees

For the house where you stay

And noticed the birds

Who light up your day?

Do you bless the soil

That grows your crops

And the wind that cools you

When the land grows hot?

Are you grateful for the rain

That quenches your thirst

And helped the creatures

Who lived here first?

 

The Earth continues to give

And we take away

What have you done for the Earth today?
