Prayer For The Earth
1991 Robyn L Stacey

Submitted by the poet 9 Sep 2001

Dear Lord,

Every life
Must run its course
And then return
To its Maker and Source.

They say the young
Shall inherit the Earth;
Then, so be it
With each new birth.

Tell the child
Of Summer and Spring,
Winter and Fall
Why the birds do sing.

Teach him the ways
To protect the beauty
Of the world left to him -
For this is his duty.

Have him understand
That the world he saves
Belongs no longer to him
But to the newborn babes.

Amen.

Robyn L Stacey
1991
