Happy Earth Day (same tune as Happy Birthday!)
Happy Earth Day to you,
Happy Earth Day to me!
Happy Earth Day to our Mother
For without her there'd be no other!
No other way breathe...
No other birds in the sky,
No trees growing in the ground,
Nowhere to find a beautiful sound!
Like birds chirping in trees,
Or ocean's waves rushing on shore,
Or children's laughter echoing in to space,
Without Mother Earth there'd be no such
Thing as a Human Race!
Thank you Mother Earth for all that you have done,
For all that you have survived,
For nurturing us and keeping us alive!
For giving us THE only planet-as far as we know of!-on which to live....
For teaching us lessons to give, give, give!
For having many places to play hide-'n-seek
For not only children but adult children, so-to-speak..
For all these things and so many, many, more
Don't know what we would've done without you
So thank you for enduring our messes
You could say 'no way' but you're full of yeses!
And so my poem comes to an end
Thank you for being more than my mother but
Also my friend.
