PLANET EARTH

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Oct 13, 2017

How wondrous is this
globe that we live on?
Its beauty is awesome 
to me,
With spectacular rivers
and oceans
And an abundance of
life in the sea.

Mother Nature is 
sublimely generous,
Her bounty is copious - 
untold,
The gifts she bestows
take your breath away
They're all there if you
look, manifold. 

There are flowers 
growing wild for our
pleasure,
Their fragrance sweet,
pure delight,
Towering mountains 
and luxuriant valleys
Each one a more 
glorious sight.

Rainforests and woods
are enchanting,
Massive oak that stand
magnifique,
Seven wonders of the
world - phenomenal
Beguiling us with their
mystique.

The great blue beyond
takes my breath away,
So different all over the
world,
Some bright and some
grey and some cloudy
Like billowing blankets
unfurled.

And how dull life would
be without music,
A genius is born with
that gift,
It stirs passions in us
and emotions
Giving fallible mortals
a lift.

The potentials for us
are abundant,
Seeds are given to us
ready to sow,
Such prospects and 
such variation
With plentiful chances
to grow.

So here we all are
with these wonders,
All of it ours for the
keeping,
But we're starving 
and killing each other
Mother Nature must
surely be weeping!

So lets all enjoy and
love our Earth, that
God has made for us,
The flowers and animals
all shall sing - my God - 
what a heavenly chorus!
The beauty is there for
all to see - in a wedding
of glorious rebirth,
And we shall love and
cherish it - together on
our natural; Planet Earth.
