Listen to the Earth song. The rapture, the glory. The song from the mighty planet, it fills our lives. Hear the sounds of the planet, with joy, with gladness. Great, bountiful Earth with songs of praises, songs of joy.
The brilliant, beautiful displays of colour. All the hues of the forest, all the vibrance of the meadows, all the showy flowers and the cascading waters. The Earth. So magnificent, so powerful. All life comes to us from this mighty planet.
Here, you awesome planet, the oasis for us. We live our lives with gratitude, with compassion. For the world presents itself with boundless discovery! Each day gives us the opportunity for more knowledge, more sport, more information, more aptitude. The mighty Earth with its seasons and changes. The great, good Earth, how to praise it.
This week, this short space in time, we contemplate the protection of the planet. How to save it, how to save ourselves. One short week of sharing ideas, information and knowledge. Too little. To take a week out of our year to concentrate on environmental protection, is not enough time. In the lifespan of the mighty planet, the needs for protection of the planet is constant.
Constant striving for zero pollution, constant striving for human population control, constant striving to reduce the impacts of development.
Environment week praises the planet for all of life.
Thank you, sighs the great planet, Earth, for the protection of that ecosystem. for unpolluted waters, unpolluted skies, unpolluted soil. Thank you for no plunder, all life survives. Thank you, almighty human, for compassion, nurturing, reforestration. Without the forest, the planet will suffocate, it will die. Without oxygen in the mighty ocean, it will die.
The mighty planet sighs, with the burden of pollution. Too much for its natural abilities to recover. Too much waste, too much plunder. Too much hardship for the great planet. It’s immense variety of animal life is being destroyed, it’s wonderful forests, for air to breathe are vanishing, it’s mighty oceans are dying.
Brilliant mankind, sighs the great planet. Thank you for your efforts. Each ecosystem is fragile, each is needed, each is a creation of its own divinity. Each is a refuge to a world of it’s own.
Brilliant mankind, sight the great planet. Thank you for environment week, even this small gesture, is worthy of praises.
