The Earth of Life


The Earth of Life

The earth lies beneath our feet.

It spins in an abundant universe.

This little ball is our loving home.

And it’s a sustainer of life.


Where does people live?

What do they do?

Where do they go on this land?

This earth holds all things together.


People live in a grand garden of hope.

Flora and fauna grace its surface.

In the air birds dart from tree to tree.

Mountains and hills arise from the ground.


Water gushes all around this planet.

Swimmers bathe in its lakes and rivers.

Ships sail on the earth’s mighty oceans.

And tourists delight in greeting foreign lands.


But the air blows that sustains life.

People welcome these winds of change.

At times there are storms across the land.

Yet, the earth is always symbolic of life itself.
