Save our Mother Earth,

Earth Day Poetry

by Amber "V" Moonstone

4/22/09

 

Earth Day is celebrated world wide,
Our thanks should go to Senator Gaylord Nelson
He started the idea of Earth Day back in 1962,
It took him seven long years!

In 1969, the first Earth Day was celebrated,
So now, this year marks a 40 year anniversary.
Senator Gaylord Nelson was a very tenacious man.
He never gave up his fight to save our Mother Earth.

We need to realize his dream,
and begin to make this planet gleam,
No more plastic bags we should choose,
only paper products should we use.

Mother Earth is crumbling fast
we humans have not learned from our past,
Recycling has begun to take ahold,
but not quick enough I am told.

Walking to your destination
can help with conservation,
Ride your bike not your car
And gasoline will go very far.

Turn off your power cords,
use your child's skate boards,
Car Pool to your job each day,
and save some of your precious pay.

Rent a movie, make a meal
save some money, make a deal
turn the heat down a few degrees,
send an email, save some trees.

Take a two minute shower
take away the Utility's power,
or control they have on you,
give them back what is due.

Read a book by candlelight,
go to bed earlier each night.
wake up early and take a walk
invite a friend so you can talk.

Remember how it used to be,
when the apples grew on the tree
and that tree was your safe place
that you would climb to hide your face.

Simpler days were much more green
and the Earth was very clean
Now she cries for us to see,
A screeching healing plea!

Celebrate this Earth Day well,
live to be one that shall tell,
All to be on this Earthly mission
and to live with The Earth's Permission!

So long ago since that day on Plymouth Rock, when that part of the earth from east to west was pristine, we have gone a long way since, to say SORRY to Mother Earth should be the order of the day.

I love this poem Amber...

Green's my favorite color and I was born on the first Earth Day... I always wondered why I was such a tree hugger and an environmentalist!

Thanks for writing this!
