Our Earth Mother

She has inspired writers to poetry and story and song and rhyme
The one very old in the dinosaur time
Our Earth Mother the one who does feed us all
For her there will never be a final Fall

The one who provides for us for as long as we live
Yet we take and take from her and in return to her little give
For her hidden treasures greedy men dig in her ground
And where men are exploiting beauty is not to be found

Some call her Mother Nature but call her what you may
Her beauty we see around us every day
The one with the magical creative powers
She creates the bushes, the grass and the trees and the flowers

Of our debt to her many of us not aware
Due to us her land life and water life becoming rare
Less land for other life forms whilst in numbers we multiply
Why we constantly abuse her one must wonder why?

She was very old before the birth of the first woman and man
And millions of  centuries her lifetime does span
In the World she feeds all of her life forms from shore to shore
The one destined to be here forever more.
