Earth 5-15-96

1999 and before

I hear the wind blow through the trees

I look at the ground surrounding my knees

Every point of view is different for me and you

As the sun beats on my face

I think of all the grace

The earth is a wonderful place for me and you

If you think of all the grace, you'll see it too.

Every animal on earth has been there

Since the first birth

All the birds, all the trees,

All the flowers, all the bees

They are my friend until the story ends

Though no oe is in control, everybody has a soul

If you listen you'll hear a sound

What it is, is a harmonious bound

When I look up at the sky

I wish I could fly with the birds and the wind

I realize we have sinned

I hear someone sining loud

I see a plane go through a cloud

I see a car parking, then a dog barking

Everyone pollutes the air

It seems like no one cares!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this poem in my grandma's back yard when I was about 11 years old. It was a beautiful day, and these words just came to me as I looked around.
