Dried leaves in the wind
Reaching places far away,
Long way from the tree.
“Are we never to go back?
And never be on the branches?
Green! shining in the sunlight!
Man has gorged away plants
Trees, the rooted pillars of life.
When will new leaves sprout?
And shoots emerge from soil?
When will buds come out as flowers
And fruits hang in bunches?
Written on the earth’s face is
The death sentence of all things alive.
May be the rivers will dry up.
Mighty oceans will flow in.
Mountains will crumble when strong winds
Try to blow them away.
Forests have caught fire
who can put off man’s greed?
The dark night beckons
Sounds unheard in the light
shadows fear to whisper
As they find nowhere to hide.
Find a home for the furry cub
A water hole for the deer and foal
The song bird needs a branch to perch
Butterfly looks for grass to hide
Earth gives life to all.
Different lives live for all lives.
