Earth Day Wishes and Poetry

 We will try to inspire you every Earth Day with some rhyme. This year we have a few selections from last year and a few new entries as well.

We hope you have a great Earth Day 2012! We hope that we all carry and extrapolate the the thoughts and respect for the Earth that many feel on this one day to the other 364 days a year.

This Old Earth needs our help
To stay fresh and clean and green
With a
Pick it up
Pitch it in and
Throw it in the can
This Old Earth needs a helping hand

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each Honey Tree,

Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone

And just as I
Need every bit
of me to make
A body fit
So Earth needs
Grass and Stone and Tree
And things that grow here

That's why we celebrate
This day
That why across
The world we say:
"As long as life,
As dear as free,
I am Earth
and this is me!"

Earth Day Earth Poem

Even the Earth knows well the market must
 Align itself with something more than greed.
 Ravenous monsters on the future feed,
 Their fangs ripping at Earth's delicate crust. 
How might one profit from an empty sea, 
Drawing dividends from dying streams?
 Although one might find riches at the seams, 
Yet none will prosper once the Earth is scree.

Even the Earth Knows Well the Market Must by Nicholas Gordon

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Nothing Gold Can Stay
-Robert Frost

Plant a tree
Watch a bee
Go clean up the
Let's leave our planet
to be,
What it intends to be
So we, and all life
Can Be ........
