I spent two hours rifling through my file on Earth Day. I watched half of the PBS special on Earth Day and remembered going to the first Earth Day celebration in 1970. I had all these sheets of information about water pollution, pesticides, eating lower on the food chain, because methane from animal husbandry may be a bigger problem than carbon dioxide, etc. etc.

Then I decided, No, that was not what I wanted to present on Earth Day. Instead I wrote this poem and took some neat pictures in the last few days that represent the beauty of the earth, not the problems. And I called it Mother Earth’s Days because every day is Earth Day for Mother Earth and we need to take care of her gifts. So here are the poem and the pictures. I plan to post the poem on tomorrow with different photos, in case you want to see more flowers and trees.

Mother Earth’s Days


Flowers nestled in the trees

Swaying gently in the breeze.

As daffodils begin to fade

Tulips bloom in every shade

Pick your favorite, if you dare

Earth’s beauty is everywhere!

Mother Nature weaves her charm

Let’s heal the planet—no more harm.

Please keep the flowers blooming yearly

And protect the earth we love so dearly!
