“Good Morning, dear Mother,
I’m ready to grow
In the shadow of father, an oak.
I long to be sturdy,
I long to give shelter
But this morning my heart nearly broke.”

“Those machines over there
Have frightened my friends
The squirrels, the birds and father, as well
The people he shaded
Who rested beneath him,
Now have come to sound his death knell.”

“Shhhhh, little acorn, stay still, ‘neath the ground.
I will nourish you as best I can.
Mother’s in mourning, my children are dying.
It's his 'nature' this "progress" of man."

I love that last stanza Katy!;-) Great earth day poem.

I'd forgotten about Earth Day, purposely so because I was supposed to write an article about the ringing of the bell at the United Nations but the ex is still dragging me through court trying tomake it appear that any evidence of brain function is a high crime.

But I still liked your poem, Kath, immensely. Drew me back to when I had to do presentations for children for the Department of Energy. ;-) ~~Nordette

Even humorous hearts can be sad...for you have spoken profound truths of what mankind is doing to Nature's wonders. Thank you for speaking so powerfully and eloquently on behalf of Mother Earth.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

Mother nature is losing too many of her children in the name of progress. Well done Kate

The land where the house you live in, the house you live in, the car you drive in, the stores you shop in, the computer you write these oh, so wonderful messages of peace and love and nature aspiring, and . . . You, dear Katy are the benefit of all of these evil products of "Man." Isn't that just peachy? I don't mean to hurt feeling and I don't mean to make mad, I am just very weary of hearing this sort of dribble.

Excellent. Less than a mile from my mobile home park "they" have cleared over 100s of acres, widended the road, and built a beautiful little pond by the entrance. Now houses will go in where there were oak trees, old orange groves and what I thought was something good to look at. Live Oak, is a specie here in Florida. A beautiful tree. On the web, go to KB Homes, then Creekside in SW Florida. That's where it's happening next to me. Love, Henry
