Until Earth’s Last Day

One day this earth will pass away
But until then it’s ours to care
For this gift of God if we dare
We don’t know when will be the day
Because God’s Word does not say
And so the prudent thing to do
Greedy destruction all eschew
Plant and grow flowers, shrubs, and trees
Keep our garbage out of the seas
For humankind, for me, for you

——–
Had to write another décima for dVerse Poets Pub, but this time following the NaPoWriMo prompt for Earth Day.

  1. So true. I believe that we are called to be stewards of this earth, but far too often do a lousy job of it.

  3. I think we all could do a lot better. If we could picture the Earth as one of our precious loved ones perhaps it would change the perspective of our duties to her. Thanks for a second poem for the prompt, Linda…I appreciate that!

  4. I think we have a big obligation to earth… Sometimes I wonder what’s the best way to fulfill it is…

    • I agree. God gave it to us to take care of, not abuse, but we aren’t doing a very good job. And I’m not just pointing fingers at everyone else — I know I don’t do my part as much as I should.
