Mother Earth, a loving Soul
Nurtures Creation in earthen breast
And when living things leave their shell
She cradles them in forever rest....
She hugs Her Mountains with glistening Snow
That melts 'neath Summer golden Suns
And Her Winter Winds roar Canyons wild
Where the clear River ceaselessly runs...
Mighty stands Her Redwood Trees
Great strength and beauty, precious, rare
Tall and reaching always Skyward
With Stars nestled in their Hair...
Mother Earth, a living Soul...
Blesses Creation with equal care
Each has the chance to live and thrive
And equally Mother Earth to share...
The Wisdom of Mother Earth, the Wild
Is something that amazes me....
Yet Mankind puts himself above
He is lost and cannot see!
He has plundered Earth and Sea
And he has poisoned even Sky...
And when he dies from Harm he's done
Will he care? Will he know Why?
The Feminine Principle he took away
From Religion and all of Life....
And the Man-ruled Earth that he has made
Has caused all Wars and led to Strife!!
Earth Mother spins in velvet Space
Among the Planets and Stars of Light
But she is my only Home
Shining blue and glowing Bright.....
