Earth Day Poems


In the Morning

In the morning, very early,
That's the time I love to go
Barefoot where the fern grows curly
And the grass is cool between each toe,v On a summer morning
On a summer morning!
That is when the birds go by
Up the sunny slopes of air,
And each rose has a butterfly
Or a golden bee to wear;
And I am glad in every toe
Such a summer morning
Such a summer morning!



Our Earth

The Earth is ours to enjoy
For every little girl and boy.
But we must always be aware.
That all its beauty we must share
With all the children yet to come,
Who want to laugh and play and run
Around the trees and in the fields.

So we must keep our planet free
From messy trash and debris
With air that's clean and fresh and clear
For all to breathe from year to year.
We must never ever abuse
Our sweet Earth that's ours to use.



This Old Earth

This old earth
Needs our help
To stay fresh and clean and green
With a pick it up; pitch it in; and throw it in the can
This old earth needs a helping hand!


Mother Earth's Gifts
Mother Earth gives her gifts for all to share,
She gives them freely, yet she's still aware,
That things are changing, perhaps for the worse.
How much more can she give if our future is cursed?

It's way past time to put Mother Earth first,
To clean up the water before we all thirst,
To clean up the air before our lungs sicken,
To renew the soil and feel it quicken.

How long until the point of no return?
How much longer until we all finally learn,
That to this task we all must rise.
And stop abusing Mother Earth before she dies.


It's Your Earth
It's your earth.
Will you neglect it,
Or nurture it?
Will you tend it,
Or squander it away?
The choice is yours,
But if you're going
To make a stand,
You'd better start today.


In celebration of Earth Day
In celebration of Earth Day,
Why not plant a tree?
It will produce fresh air,
And be a joy for all to see.

In celebration of Earth Day,
Go and visit a local park.
Get back in touch with nature,
Its sites and sounds in light and dark.

In celebration of Earth Day
Try to be more aware,
Of how your actions affect this world
And devote yourself to its care.
