Take care of the earth.

the green Earth rocks me
in my land-and-sea cradle
she sings in bird song

Blue green mother cries
telling her children to hear
her wisdom, give back her love.

Step lightly on Earth.
Mankind’s only hope, our home.
Respect, cherish her.

Blue marble in space
spinning its face to the sun
irreplaceable
