A man declared, ‘earth does not care for my deeds
A woman shared ‘earth certainly cries to appease
Through the wonder of the earths gracious land
Many species whimper sobs that we may understand

The flowers that wilt wail unmistakably
The field that thirsts weeps noticeably
The sky that thunders, echoes its concern
The waves unpredictable, a lesson to learn

When the dawn briefs the morning to light the day
When night farewells the noon, our time to lay
Four season are given for mans enjoyment
Constellations shines through the skies adornment

The mountains are clothed in glory and splendour
Protecting us from that which may hinder
The hills bring about their bountiful produce
As the springs graceful form provides its juice

Pressing rain vacates the expanse above
Reproducing for the nourishment of that we love
Earths foundations surely braces itself
Marking its dimensions for future wealth

Think not the varied landscapes turn a blind eye
Ask not that the terrains appeal to mankind why
It is creations acclaim to reveal its hidden treasure
Applause dances from its womb in thoughtful pleasure
