A poem for Earth Day as prompted for NaPoWriMo:
A place of infinite delight:
Majestic oceans clear and pure,
And forests taking as their right
Free growth, pollution ills to cure;
All creatures ranging freely where
The whim should take them; no restraint
Except from natural barriers there –
Of interference, not a taint.
On Earth Day we may well reflect
What perfect planet this would be,
If only it would just reject
The presence of humanity.
