Earth Sings by David Wilson

If Earth sings

What song would she sound?

 

A last lament

For wilderness lost

And dying coral seas?

 

The strident anthem

Of human industry

And Science’s advance?

 

A joyful dance

For each mother’s love

And hopeful birth?

 

Or bitter cries

For suffering man

Of hunger, thirst and war?

 

If Earth sings

Her complex song

Tells of these and more

The music swells

As if to say

Regard this Earth with awe
