Earth Day 2013

We spent Earth Day in the beautiful mountains and then came home and celebrated with our Second Life friends and Pre-Release!!! I found this poem while on a wooded trail and wanted to share it here. Hope you had a great Earth Day!

Earth Day

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
