The photo above is that of the earth mother bell that my artist friend made while she was in art school.It brought out a certain kind of emotion inside me when I saw it and thus this poem was born. Support Greenpeace-JEB


Now tell me what is this thing, what does it represent?

Will we be able to comprehend itís meaning to our heartís content?

Why does it fill our soul with such a strange wonderment?

Making us feel and cherish our lifeís every moment



The way it make us feel like we are being nourished

The earthís love and warmth making us flourish

Thinking of mother earthís love that we all cherish

Without the gifts of the earth humankind will perish



It is but truly fitting to make a bell out of the image

To wake up those whose thoughts had been sleeping in this age

We are not all as wise and as intelligent as the bygone royal sage

But we all know that a battle against evil in this time should be waged



Now even the weather system is suddenly changing

Our dear mother earthís health is slowly failing

We are having worldwide disasters that are alarming

Effects of what is called everywhere as global warming




Do we stay deaf to the earthís mournful call?

Canít we hear it calling, canít we hear it toll?

Will we be a part of mankindís end, the human raceís downfall

In saving our dear motherís life shouldnít we give our all?




There is evil destruction being done to nature and we know it well

Destroying trees, killing animals just to have something to sell

Destroying the environment wantonly, creating our own hell

Itís time to hark, and hear the call of the earth mother bell
