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.
The poem was part of a collection written for school teacher to use as part of an earth day celebration, no author was notated.
I have made several commitments this year to help conserve our resources. Here is a glimpse of my list:
hang laundry outside to dry
plant a small vegetable garden
continue to ride the commuter van
turn the faucet off
discover new ways to recycle(ideas I will share along the way)
carry trash bags when I hike to clean up along the path
What are your ideas to recycle, reduce and/or reuse? Please share below…we may learn new ideas.
