NaPoWriMo: Earth Day

“And this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything. I would not change it.”

–William Shakespeare, As You Like it


The robin sings on Earth Day morning

Songs of love, and calls of warning

Stories heard in brooks and trees

Stories we must try to heed

Before it is too late

Yet, look, the

Full moon



On us all

The fox and owl

The polar bear, too,

Though ice melts at the poles

And coral reefs are bleaching

Still tonight we’re here together

And Robin will sing in the morning


NaPoWriMo, Day 22   A bit late, but it’s been a busy day.

Today’s challenge: A poem for Earth Day.  Happy Earth Day and Happy Passover!

  1. I love the hope in this, the bright moon shining on us all–the beauty as well as the “calls of warning,” and how we’re all in it together.
