‘There would be little point ... saving (animals) and their habitat unless we teach the next generation to be better stewards than we have been’ Primatologist Dr Jane Goodall



We are earth stewards
Stewards of this earth

Kingdom, origin paradise
Given us for intelligent care

Pristine beauty
Forests abound nourishment and verve

Gardens imbue lessons
Sprinkled with secrets to make us aware

We must tread lightly
Can’t crush any life

Life so strong
Even more fragile
Depends on each other to ‘keep’ it right

We’ve not been good ground keepers
Only a few have seen the light
We have disregarded animals living in jungles
Far closer than humans might

How can we forget the creatures?
The large and the small
How can we take what’s theirs

When caring is what life has been given for

"Only a few have seen the light" ... so true!

So true, so very true.
Sweden: For every tree they chop down, they plant two.
Though I'm guilty..Had a moth invasion so I chased the blighters and shot them down with a candle...
Rain forest is the thing too. as well as the global warming...

We must act more responsibly... Now I'm off to show the ants my magnifying glass...pop

Yes, we must keep reminding ourselves of this

Very true. A lot will depend on how the next generation treats the earth... By the way, where did you get that photo of Tinka's husband?

this is a treasure, Suzie...so much compassion and entreaty. Like the others, I find the last line to be a humdinger!

How can we forget the creatures?
The large and the small
How can we take what’s theirs
This is so deeply touching Suzie
Excellent poem
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/17/2006
Outstanding write about somthing that always needs attention brought to it, it does not preach merely states the obvious and in an open and honest manner. Sweet graphic of a noble animal as well.
